Practices in and Reflections on Development, Security and Peace in Contexts of Violent Extremism and Terrorism, New York


As part of the UN Global Counter Terrorism Strategy Review, Human Security Collective was part of a side event hosted by the Dutch Permanent Mission to the UN. The side event hosted by the Dutch Permanent Mission to the UN and organized by Human Security Collective (HSC) in collaboration with West African Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP), Hedayah, International Centre for Counterterrorism (ICCT), Cordaid and United Network of Young Peace builders (UNOY) presents a number of practices and reflections on the prevention and mitigation of threats that may lead to violent extremism and terrorism.

The organizers invited panelists from governments, civil society and communities around the globe.
