Research to better understand the dynamics of violent extremism in Sri Lanka and the potential role of youth and volunteers in addressing it

This project will engage the support of a research organization or academic institution to look into issues with specific focus on Sri Lankan context. The findings of the research will be used to inform the content of the outreach, the training under the activity 1.1 and policy advocacy with the Government to reduce the risk which youth involves in violent activity and to promote non-violent norms at community and school level. The project also will support the implementation of the National Consultations and FGDs on UNSC Resolution 2250 and on volunteerism and citizen engagement in the prevention of violent extremism.
