OUR ANNUAL REPORTS

The UNESCO-PREV Chair’s annual reports provide a comprehensive overview of its organizational structure; its latest statistics; its actions, activities and impacts; its financial partnerships and its grants.

2020 ANNUAL REPORT

For the UNESCO-PREV Chair, as for everyone around the world, the watchwords for this year 2020 have been adaptation and resilience in the context of the global Covid-19 pandemic. At the same time, this crisis has confirmed the importance of our mission: how to prevent radicalization and violent extremism?

While solidarity actions have multiplied, there has also been a proliferation of misinformation, messages of hatred and intolerance and violent extremist ideologies of all kinds. The crisis has fuelled and reinforced an already well-established global trend. In this context, the Chair once again experienced a particularly active year in Quebec, Canada and internationally.

The 2020 programming, presented in our 2020 Annual Report, outlines the main projects carried out during this year. Although the Chair had to postpone several events, including three major national and international conferences, it was able to rethink the format of certain activities.

For example, it offered its first massive open online course “From Hate to Hope” and developed a new toolkit on racial and social profiling.

2019 ANNUAL REPORT

2019 was a very active year for the UNESCO-PREV Chair in Québec, in Canada and at the international level. Throughout this second year, our main challenges were the implementation of the Chair and the structuring of its national and international networks. We faced these challenges while pursuing our research projects that were already in progress and carrying out our teams’ activities within our institutions.

The 2019 programming, shown in our 2019 Annual Report, includes structuring actions, such as the stabilization of the Chair’s team and the launch of our website, as well as the creation of social network accounts, a mapping of centres of expertise in prevention of radicalization and violent extremism, and a bank of associate members, which is now regularly updated.

For the UNESCO-PREV Chair, 2019 saw the launch, the pursuing or the completion of several large-scale research and action research projects, as evidenced by our numerous scientific publications.

The Chair also co-organized various events, including two major international conferences, in Ottawa and in Rabat, Morocco, which promoted Québec and Canada’s expertise abroad. Lastly, we continued taking part in a number of training, awareness and knowledge transfer activities.

2018 ANNUAL REPORT

Officially launched on February 23rd, 2018, the UNESCO-PREV Chair had a very busy year in Québec, in Canada and at the international level. For our first year of existence, our main challenge was to take on the Chair’s implementation, to start the structuring of its national and international networks and to launch new research projects, while pursuing our teams’ activities among our institutions and the search for financing.

The 2018 programming, shown in the report which spreads to the beginning of 2019, includes structuring actions such as the recruitment of a coordinator and team members, the planning of our website and social network accounts, the progressive implementation of internal structures, as well as the first steps of a global mapping of expertise in prevention of radicalization and violent extremism and an international database of experts, which will both be enriched in the upcoming years.

The report also includes several major research projects and scientific publications. Lastly, our team took part in a number of training, awareness and knowledge transfer activities.
