Date: December 10, 2021 from 2 PM to 3:30 PM (Eastern time)
The CPN-PREV, Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence and UNESCO Chair in Prevention of Radicalization and Violent Extremism invite you to the live presentation and discussion of CPN-PREV’s 3rd systematic review results. This discussion panel will explore the outcomes of tertiary PVE programs. We analyzed the empirical literature on tertiary PVE programs in order to identify the overall effectiveness of interventions for individuals already on violent radical trajectories (e.g., members of violent radical groups or individuals that have already committed acts of political violence). The effectiveness of disengagement modules, “deradicalization” modules, and other components of tertiary PVE programs will be compared. Successes and iatrogenic effects will be discussed in order to promote a “do-no-harm” approach.”

The CPN-PREV, Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence and UNESCO Chair in Prevention of Radicalization and Violent Extremism invite you to the live presentation and discussion of CPN-PREV’s 2nd systematic review results. This discussion panel will explore the outcomes of primary and secondary PVE programs. At CPN-PREV, we analyzed the empirical literature on PVE programs in order to identify the overall effectiveness of preventative interventions and the components that were most often associated with success or failure in meeting program goals. The successes and iatrogenic effects of program components are discussed in order to promote a “do-no-harm” approach grounded in non-stigmatizing and non-oppressive practices.

During this second “Get to know…” event, Irfan Chaudhry will introduce Stop Hate AB, an initiative that aims to document hate incidents in Alberta, which usually go unreported, as they consist of non-criminal actions, contrary to hate crimes. The first 15 minutes of the event will consist of a presentation of the initiative. Another 15 minutes will be allotted to a Q&A question.

The Canadian Practitioners Network for the Prevention of Radicalization and Extremist Violence (CPN-PREV) has recently conducted a mapping of secondary and tertiary prevention programs working in the context of radicalization and violent extremism in Canada and published an interactive map illustrating the key players across the country. This endeavor allowed CPN-PREV to:
During the event, we will present the highlights of the mapping research and the recommendations that resulted from it. Madison Reid, program manager of Shift BC will also share her experience and perspective on collaborations in the field of P/CVE in Canada.

This conference was composed of two interrelated sections – the first section, Prevention in Practice, resembled a more traditional academic conference. The second section, Mind the Gap!, brought together practitioners from diverse sectors and youth leaders to engage in an interactive two-day exercise to facilitate connections and knowledge sharing between them. The activities were designed to create bridges by building trust between practitioners and youth as well as reflect on how our realities influence our personal trajectories by shaping our social identities.
Prevention in Practice: National & International Approaches to P/CVE
The conference bought together leading scholars, practitioners, and policymakers engaged with violent extremism. The primary goal of this conference was exchanging theoretical understandings from multiple disciplines and good practices related to the prevention of violent extremism across different disciplinary and geographic contexts.
Mind the Gap! Youth and Practitioners Summit
Youth are heavily targeted by all forms of extremism and hate speech. Many have profound and at times life-changing experiences of discrimination and exclusion and have, in this sense, a deep, existential knowledge of the dynamics of hate and extremism. Mind the Gap! Allowed the opening of dialogue between youth and practitioners.
sectors such as funding agencies and academic based organisations.
