In 2021, UNDP OGC supported by the Government of Norway will host its third global conference on PVE. Twenty years since the events of September 11th that drove a global counter-terrorism agenda and the evolution of a countering and PVE framework, the time is right for UNDP to lead a conversation on how to contextualize this work to modern challenges.

As the world moves on from the health crisis of COVID-19, the global community of PVE researchers, practitioners, and governments needs to reassess how the eco-system for violent extremism has evolved, evaluate if its policies and programmes are still fit for purpose, and – where they are not – develop new approaches to prevention efforts.

The main aim of the conference is to understand how the violent extremism landscape has evolved since the onset of COVID-19 and to distill lessons for future research, policy, and programming by:

  1. Understanding the changes in the violent extremism eco-system
  2. Reviewing current approaches
  3. Framing UNDPs forward-looking approach
