Toolkit of cross-regional vulnerability/resilience factors
Risk & Resilience Map
The risk map visualises transnational risk and resilience factors in two ways. The risk factors (disintegration, identity crisis, vulnerability to propaganda, etc.) and the resilience factors (integration, the role of credible voices, social media, education, intercultural dialogue, etc.), with a dedicated signal representing them, are the main parts of the map.
Open Access Training Modules
PAVE developed five online and offline training modules for practitioners and local communities to strengthen their ability to promote and support inclusive local multi-stakeholder partnerships in preventing and addressing violent extremism, with group activity exercises, tools and opportunities for self-reflection. The training modules increase understanding and capacity for creating multi-stakeholder partnerships between civil society, religious actors and government officials to increase community resilience against violent extremism.
The modules include:
- Discovering Community Vulnerability and Resilience Factors in Preventing and Addressing Violent Extremism
- How to Recognize and Address Online Forms of Recruitment, Propaganda and Incitement to Violence
- How to Advance Inclusivity Within Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism Community-based Initiatives
- Community Resilience and Multi-Stakeholder Collaboration to Support Reintegration to Society and Disengagement from Violent Extremism
- Bridging Partnerships with Faith-Based Actors and Institutions in Preventing and/or Countering Violent Extremism and Supporting Community Resilience
Developed by PAVE project partner Finn Church Aid / the Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers, the training modules increase understanding and capacity for creating multi-stakeholder partnerships between civil society, religious actors and government officials to increase community resilience against violent extremism.
Expert trainers are featured throughout each module to help guide participants through the topic with practical guidance and knowledge from the field. Click here to watch all the expert trainer videos.
The thematic focus areas of each module were derived from identified capacity-building needs by local stakeholders in the Western Balkans and Middle East North Africa (MENA) Regions. Participatory consultations, interviews and a validation workshop with policymakers, faith actors and civil society in the MENA and Western Balkans were held throughout 2021 and 2022 to understand the capacity-building needs and interests related to preventing violent extremism through local multi-stakeholder partnerships, with the purpose of developing capacity-building tools and training modules.
How to Use the Modules:
Each module is designed in an online format for individual users, or an in-person group format, that is designed to be led by an experienced facilitator. The format of the in-person training module provides the experienced facilitator with a menu of design options to contextualize for his or her specific context and needs. Certificates are available following the completion of each online or offline module.
