Advanced Summer Programme, Preventing Violent Extremism: Towards a networked approach
Various stakeholders are acting on a daily basis and in a joint and coordinated effort to tackle the wicked problem of preventing violent extremism. Security services, policy makers, lawyers, academics, youth workers, teachers, parents and other actors each have their specific roles including specific perspectives, authorities, interests and limitations. To effectively come up with prevention measures, signaling and addressing radicalisation, or strengthening public resilience, it is vital for every actor to understand the position and role of its network partners.
This summer programme enables participants to get an insight in the opportunities and challenges of a networked approach. In an intensive five-day course participants will meet academics, experts and practitioners and discuss the latest dilemmas and trends in the field of preventing violent extremism and how these dilemmas influence the public debate. Furthermore, participants will work on cases to distinguish the various roles and limitations of different stakeholders and how these relate to each other in their joint efforts to prevent violent extremism.
This summer programme, which looks at the preventive dimension and which is organiszed by the Institute of Security and Global Affairs (Leiden University) and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT), is followed by a complementary summer programme, which focuses on legal aspects of countering terrorism, and which is organised by the T.M.C. Asser Instituut and ICCT. Participants can choose to register for one or both of the programmes. If a participant chooses both programmes, he/she will receive a discount in the total fee.
