This report explores the nexus of counter violent extremism (CVE) and peacebuilding and is written for counterterrorism and CVE experts and peacebuilders. Underpinning this report is the assumption that a stronger bridge between practitioners from both worlds would contribute to a broader understanding and more effective practice of countering violent extremism. The report also establishes suggestions for peacebuilders to implement and improve the CVE agenda by recognising women as effective assets who must be empowered and equipped in order to participate in important roles.
