The Life & Peace Institute in partnership with the Rift Valley Institute organised a Horn of Africa Bulletin Forum on ‘P/CVE - the Good, the Bad and the Ugly’. The Forum brought together representatives from IGAD member states, prominent academicians, civil society groups and other relevant partners, from 11-12 January 2018 in Naivasha, Kenya.

Participants interrogated basic assumptions about ‘what works, where and when’ in designing policies and programmes that can help prevent or mitigate violent extremism in the Horn of Africa. A number of challenges mentioned also underscored the need to get P/CVE programming right by undertaking evidence-based design and implementation.

The Forum follows from the July-August 2017 issue of the Horn of Africa Bulletin, which has been publishing analysis relating to the Horn of Africa for the past 25 years.
