The UN Secretary-General’s 2016 Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism recommends that “…each Member State should consider developing a national plan of action to prevent violent extremism which sets national priorities for addressing the local drivers of violent extremism”

But what about other countries in the region?
Let’s listen to two experts – Ibu Ruby Kholifah and Dr Azmil Tayeb – who will speak on their countries’ National Action Plan’s strategies, their effectiveness and challenges faced by people in the CVE and security sector.
