Policy Brief: Prevention of Violent Extremism through Education in Central Asia

22 July 2019

Education has a powerful role to play in long-term prevention of violent extremism by equipping learners with the right skills and competencies, increasing employment opportunities and empowering youth. This policy brief aims to provide a better understanding of Preventing Violent Extremism through Education (PVE-E) and the relevant policy interventions that could be taken in four Central Asian countries.

UNESCOs role with regard to PVE has focused on supporting countries to create the conditions for learners to build resilience against extremism and strengthen their commitment to non-violence and peace. UNESCO Almaty has issued this brief as part of Central Asian series and you can download it in English and Russian.
