Nigeria: Civil Society Declaration on Processes Towards Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism

Nigeria: Civil Society Declaration on Processes Towards Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism

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).

In the course of the Workshop, a closed session of a Civil Society Working Group was held, during which the following Declaration was articulated. The Declaration from the Civil Society Working Group was subsequently presented to the broader multi-stakeholder session.

The Partnership Against Violent Extremism [PAVE Network], a network of Civil Society Organizations working on PCVE and partnering with other stakeholders including State Actors, and in particular ONSA, takes ownership of this declaration, and commits to the vigorous promotion of its content in all her engagements with other stakeholders – State and non-state, national and international.

The deliberations and declaration of the Civil Society Working Group is categorized around three subthemes as follows:

  • Preventing violence and recruitment into violent groups
  • Producing and Amplifying Alternative Narratives
  • Fostering effective and meaningful partnership
