Event description: 

CVE – or Countering Violent Extremism – has become a global industry involving states, think tanks and international agencies the world over. But what does CVE look like from the street level? And does it work? Drawing on over 15 years of work in the UK, Indonesia, Pakistan, Sudan, Mali and Canada, Yale World Fellow Abdul-Rehman Malik reflects on the challenges of designing programs and partnerships that confront the ideology and theology of violent extremism while at the same time remaining true to the concerns of engaged, often politically vulnerable, communities. The answers he presents will make for some uncomfortable listening.
