Please note that in Week 3 the Violent Non-State Group seminar is on Monday rather than Wednesday to coincide with Eric Rosand's visit to Oxford.
Preventing Violent Extremism: A Community-focused Approach
This talk on the global CVE Agenda will highlight some of the challenges and opportunities confronting governments and the multilateral system in the face of a violent extremist threat that is both more global and localized than ever.
