DESCRIPTION

MAPPING OF CENTERS OF EXPERTISE

The Chair is conducting a mapping of centers of expertise in prevention of violent extremism (PVE), in order to aggregate the results in an international open access bank of experts and institutions (by country) on the Chair’s website, which is regularly updated.

 

This cartography allows the general public to quickly identify the poles of expertise (research, community, government and international organizations) on a map and to access an experts database composed of researchers and practitioners working in primary, secondary and tertiary PVE programs.

 

The objectives of this mapping are to identify and network poles of expertise and communities of practice in PVE at the international level. It aims to share and promote research and action in the prevention of violent radicalization and extremism. Finally, this mapping is an innovative tool to ensure close collaboration between researchers and communities of practice in a comparative, multidisciplinary and North-South perspective.
