Preventing violent extremism (PVE) is a priority of HRDC mandate. It is part of HRDC’s engagement for peace and human security. Under HRDC Strategic Plan on Preventing Violent Extremism, the HRDC is working with its partners to deprive violent extremism of its breeding ground and promote a global response that aims to build more peaceful societies.
To do this it places dialogue at the heart of prevention. Prevention means accepting that violence is born within our societies. We must understand why and act on that understanding.
HRDC with Getting support from its Partners is working to eradicate the direct and structural causes of violent extremism. Exclusion (political, social, economic, and cultural) and human rights abuse are some of the reasons why young people in particular turn to violent extremism.
