“We know a lot more than we did 20 years ago about how we can address the challenges posed by violent extremism and the factors that nourish its dynamics. But violent extremist ideologies and movements are also highly resilient and adaptable, and our research and strategies must be similarly adaptive to stay on top of changing threat landscapes. Deakin is proud to be contributing to this effort through our support for one of the globally leading research conferences in the field”, says Professor Michele Grossman, Research Chair in Diversity and Community Resilience at Deakin University.
“UNDP’s partnership with Hedayah has generated valuable insight and helped develop critical research which has resulted in creating successful programs in preventing violent extremism in local communities in South-East Asia,” said Valerie Cliff, UNDP’s Deputy Director for Asia and the Pacific.
“Our collaboration has helped UNDP develop a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the root causes of extremism in South-East Asia and contribute to more effective engagements and policy development in the region.”
In efforts to enhance international collaboration and burden-sharing on P/CVE efforts, Hedayah created a model where a number of institutions have supported the Conference in strategic partnership. For 2019, the Strategic Partners are Afrobarometer, Albany Associates, the Canadian Network for Terrorism, Security & Society (TSAS), Conflict Management Consulting (CMC), DAI, the George Washington University Program on Extremism, the Global Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF), M&C Saatchi, Macquaire University, Monash University, Moonshot CVE, Multicultural New South Wales (NSW), the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), The Stabilization Network (TSN), the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, the University of Queensland, and Victoria University.
