Our strategy begins with building a robust foundation to fulfil our mid and long-term goals. These are stepping stones to achieving our ultimate vision: to prepare and support regional CSOs in their work against violent extremism.
The South East Asian Network of Civil Society Organisations (SEAN-CSO) works to counter violent extremism in South East Asia. On Tuesday 27 February 2018, the Steering Committee of SEAN-CSO endorsed a Strategy that outlines what the Network wants to achieve in the short, medium and long term. Through achievement of the short, mid and long term goals, the Network will progress toward the vision that “through SEAN-CSO, regional civil society organisations are supported and equipped to work against violent extremism”.
On Tuesday 13 March 2018, a meeting that brought together existing and potential members of SEAN-CSO was held in Sydney, Australia. Participants at the meeting designed the key activities that the Network could undertake over the next two year period to progress towards the mid-term goals outlined within the Strategy.
Below the goals are listed (1-5) with the accompanying work plan objectives (a-i) that were identified by the meeting participants.
