The kick-off meeting highlighted the importance of embracing a new evidence-based approach to better prevent and counter violent extremism. Countering extremist narratives must take into account a set of elements including prevention, respect, inclusion, diversity, and respect for human rights. Policies and programs, however, can only be designed and implemented if they are informed by strong scientific evidence, tailored for the context-specific situation and if they bring relevant stakeholders on board.
