This advanced summer programme focuses on the field of preventing, detecting and responding to violent extremism and gives you insights in the opportunities and challenges of a networked approach.
This advanced summer programme, organised by Leiden University and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT). 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 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, detecting and responding to violent extremism are ‘wicked problems’ – 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, policy makers, 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.
