This advanced summer programme focuses on the field of preventing violent extremism and gives you insights into the opportunities and challenges of a networked approach.
The latest dilemmas and trends in the field of preventing violent extremism, various views on radicalisation, de-radicalisation and re-socialisation, geopolitical developments and how they influence public debate, the opportunities and challenges of a networked approach, the various roles and, perspectives of stakeholders active in the field, are all covered in this programme through lectures, workshops, serious games, panel discussions and much more.
Preventing violent extremism is a ‘wicked problem’ – a dynamic tangle of complex issues, a wide range of stakeholders and no clean-cut, obvious solutions. Tackling this problem requires a networked approach where all actors work together in a joint and coordinated effort. From security services, policymakers, lawyers, and academics to youth workers, teachers, parents and other actors, all stakeholders have their own role to play. Each stakeholder, in turn, works from the premise of their own specific perspectives, authorities, interests, and limitations. In order to ensure effective prevention measures, strengthen public resilience and increase on-time signaling and addressing of radicalisation, it is vital to understand the position and role of network partners.
This advanced summer programme, organised by the Centre for Professional Learning of Leiden University and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT), provides insights into the opportunities and challenges of a networked approach to prevention. 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.
Location: The summer programme will be held in The Hague. The programme combines its unique location in The Hague, the International City of Peace and Justice, with the academic expertise of the Institute for Security and Global Affairs and the ICCT.
