MADRID +10: Preventing and countering
The Madrid+10 initiative aims to inform and empower stakeholders in the struggle against radicalization and violent extremism and the actions that governments and society must firmly and jointly undertake to effectively tackle this scourge, while respecting democracy and the rule of law.
In this process, a Policy Dialogue on Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism was held in Madrid, October 27-28, with the objective of channeling the collective wisdom, ideas, experience and political will of policymakers and opinion formers from all over the world to produce an authoritative Global Consensus on how to confront and prevent radicalization and violent extremism, wherever it happens, with due respect for the Rule of Law and human rights. This Global Consensus, a set of principles and values, is to serve as a benchmark, resource and source of inspiration to political leaders on how to respond to the daunting challenge of radicalization and violent extremism.
