The UNESCO-PREV Chair continuously expands its network through partnerships with organizations and individuals whose expertise lies in preventing radicalization. Its team seeks to strengthen and develop collaborations in Quebec, Canada and at the international level through work meetings in various committees and through joint projects.
Promoting knowledge and expertise sharing, the UNESCO-PREV Chair joined forces with some thirty experts – practitioners and researchers – from a variety of fields: politics, psychology and psychiatry, intercultural relations, education, criminology, philosophy, sociology, etc.
In order to foster knowledge sharing and capacity building, the UNESCO-PREV Chair relies on a growing network of dedicated organizations. Our team comprises about ten (10) partner organizations in Quebec and Canada, and approximately twenty-five (25) partner organizations in South America, Europe, Africa and Asia.
