The Partnership Against Violent Extremism (PAVE), a network of Civil Society Organizations working on PCVE and partnering with other stakeholders including State Actors, and in particular ONSA, took ownership of this declaration, and committed to the vigorous promotion of its content.
The National workshop was organized as a part of the “Preventing Violent Extremism: Leaders Telling A Different Story” project of the Club de Madrid [CdM] being implemented in a twelve month pilot across three countries [Nigeria, Tunisia and Lebanon], and across two regions (Africa and MENA).
