Consultation Preventing Violent Extremism in Prisons

This consultation is jointly organized by UNDP and PRI in collaboration with UNODC. The overall objective is to learn from ongoing practices and models, such as by UNODC and PRI, as well as regional and global experts and to inform UNDP’s future approach on PVE in prisons, building on the existing knowledge base on the potential of prisons and probation authorities in the prevention of and disengagement from violent extremism, and to take stock of the most effective development interventions to date.

By convening international experts and practitioners, the workshop will focus on:

Developing a better understanding of the process of radicalization to violence in prisons and detention centres, in different contexts; 

Promoting an exchange of knowledge, research and practical experiences on PVE in prisons and detention centres, including global good practices;

Considering possible roles of key actors engaged in PVE work in prisons and detention centres, with a special focus on the role of UNDP Country Offices, and

Feeding into recommendations for global policy development and guidance for UNDP and others, in this area.
