ELIAMEP’s South–East Europe Programme participates in the new EU research project PAVE (Preventing and Addressing Violent Extremism through Community Resilience in the Balkans and MENA). PAVE aims to tackle the global issue of radicalization by examining its root causes and driving factors. Based on a comparative assessment of local communities with features of vulnerability or resilience to violent extremism across seven case study countries, the 13 international partner institutions will develop concrete policy proposals to inform citizens and stakeholders within and beyond the regions studied. Over the next three years, the consortium will receive EUR 3 million funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.
