On 13-14 December 2022, CONNEKT organised the Cross-Regional Youth Forum on violent extremism (VE) in Spokje, North Macedonia. Hosted by the Islamic Youth Forum (IYF), the gathering addressed the role of youths within the frame of VE and, through an innovative dynamic methodology, engaged youths in the reflection on the drivers of VE and the creation of prevention measures. All the members of the Consortium met with 16 young people (two per country studied) to promote the views of youths in the field of prevention. Besides youth representatives and members of the CONNEKT Consortium, institutional representatives, researchers, community-led practitioners, policy-makers and other external stakeholders also took part in the Forum.
The report than can be found below stems from this Forum and includes preliminar ideas, on-site analysis, and key insights on PVE developed by the participants of the forum.
