International communities, decision makers, religious leaders, civil society actors, academics, as well as citizens are all responsible to engage in a constructive dialogue to improve their perceptions about each other to promote freedom, human dignity and peace.
The TICVE Think Tank was established to promote sustainable peace by designing an active strategy to build youth resilience to radicalization in communities, which are most vulnerable to violent extremism, especially the youth as important segments in these communities.
The Transnational Initiative Countering Violent Extremism (TICVE) Think Tank main objective is to engage in outreach at the local level to foster trust, improve awareness, and educate communities about violence risk factors in order to stop radicalization to violence before it starts. Our purpose is to launch pilot comprehensive prevention projects with a focus on two important types of programs: education based program and action research program.
TICVE embraces education based advocacy programs through the implementation and execution of projects aiming at building community resilience to violent extremism; a special focus will be made on youth and women. In addition, TICVE embraces action research programs which will comprise field research projects that support and coordinate efforts to better understand the phenomenon of violent extremism. Through action research, the TICVE team will primarily identify violent extremist ideologies as well as the communities, which are most vulnerable to them.
