This three-days online advanced summer programme focuses on the field of preventing, detecting and responding to violent extremism and gives insight in the opportunities and challenges of various approaches.


This online summer programme, organised by the Centre for Professional Learning of Leiden University and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT), provides insight into the opportunities and challenges of various approaches to prevent, detect and respond to violent extremism. In an intensive three-day course, participants will meet academics, experts, policy makers and practitioners and discuss the latest research insights, trends and dilemmas in the field of preventing violent extremism and how these dilemmas influence the effectiveness of various approaches in practice. Furthermore, participants will explore the various roles and limitations of different stakeholders and approaches and how these relate to each other in their joint efforts to prevent violent extremism. How is violent extremism viewed? How is detection and prevention approached and shaped in policies and practice? During our online summer programme practitioners and researchers will explore the different academic views on these questions, including critical perspectives.


Speakers: Dr. Bart Schuurman, Dr. Richard McNeil and Dr. Sarah Carthy
