Round Table: Role of Education & Youth in Preventing Urban Violence & Violent Extremism

On 21 October 2015, the INEE Working Group on Education & Fragility hosted a one-day round table event on "The Role of Education and Youth in Preventing Urban Violence and Countering Violent Extremism".

Read the Round Table final report.


The aims of the roundtable were: 

  • to share research and experience on the intersection of education, urban violence, and violent extremism; 
  • to articulate priority areas for research and programming, and discuss possible INEE engagement in the fields of education, urban violence, and violent extremism.

This event brought together members of INEE's Working Groups, as well as a number of external participants. The round table provided a platform to address ongoing research and programming related to these areas, and focussed on the role played by youth in peace-building.
