In December 2019, the UNESCO Chair in Prevention of Radicalisation and Violent Extremism participated in the organization of the following interviews. They were conducted by Rawda Harb and Vivek Venkatesh of Project Someone. The event took place over two days in Rabat, Morocco.
The event aimed to engage women and youth in the conversations and workshops about violence and radicalization, as they are often survivors of such acts. Moreover, the myriad roles of women and youth in preventing violence and radicalisation, improving critical thinking and nurturing resilience are crucial to any future progress in these areas.
The 12 participants are researchers, young students or professionals who gave insights on their work, passions, and expectations from the event. The interviews took place in the participants’ language of choice (Arabic, English or French) and subsequently translated into the other official languages.
You can access the videos in all 3 languages on Project Someone’s Vimeo channel or view the English captioned video interviews with the different participants below:
