Read Complete Seminar Report of the Two-Day International Seminar, “Countering Violent Extremism: Global Action Plan”
The two-day International Seminar on ‘Countering Violent Extremism: Global Action Plan’ was aimed at exploring and sharing the ways and means to curb the menace of violent extremism. This seminar was an important milestone in CPGS’ continuing endeavors under mega ‘Project SALAM’ to understand the evolving dynamics of violent extremism in national and international paradigms. To make it more productive than a simple academic exercise, pre-seminar research was conducted and drafted into a policy proposal. At the end of the seminar, this policy proposal was presented by the President CPGS.
The Seminar was conducted over a span of two days, and hosted twenty-two speakers and five chairs in five thematic working sessions, that were followed by detailed Q&A sessions. The Program for the event is included in the report.
The Seminar witnessed impressive representation from all relevant institutions. The occasion was graced by a galaxy of parliamentarians, high level dignitaries, ambassadors and other senior diplomats, legal experts, academic scholars, members of the media, the defense community and civil society, representatives from relevant organizations as well as university students.
