Working with public and private organisations to counter violent extremism

Kosta  Lucas

The concept of “community resilience” is at the heart of all community-initiatives that aim to prevent and counter violent extremism. However, like the term “radicalisation”, it is a loosely defined term, and the conceptual gaps are becoming much clearer in the face of emerging extremist groups and ideologies, particularly right wing extremism. The purpose of this presentation is to highlight, from a practitioner’s perspectives, how current conceptualisations of “community resilience” are limited, and how they can be adapted, with a particular emphasis on cross-discipline collaboration and multi-stakeholder partnerships.
