Over the last decade, the EC has invested heavily in combating violent extremism (VE), by addressing conditions conducive to its spread and strengthening the resilience of vulnerable communities. This brochure will be showcasing stories and lessons learned on how the EC has assisted partner countries in their efforts to address VE. The stories aim to reach beyond the practical illustrations of the EC approach to P/CVE. It is rather an overview of the main results achieved, presenting the human face of the EU’s P/CVE programmes, and extracting lessons learned which are relevant for the design of future programmes. The stories are selected from different regions and cover different thematic topics.
