Feedback form is now closed.
This interagency-focused discussion is intended to generate discussion and action within the development community to “mind the gaps” in development support to traditional and non-traditional interagency partners in preventing or combating violent extremism. We hope to spark ongoing research and dialogue that will look for innovative practices, products or methodologies that contribute to US National Security goals and objectives through a development lens. In this “Ted Talks” style panel, we would like to highlight previous successes, current opportunities and a brief over-the-horizon look at refining development efforts in multi-agency CVE/NPE activities.
