This training course aims to meet the challenges of extremist violence in multicultural society settings through peace-building activities. Peace-building activities are a part of the field of peace and conflict transformation studies.
In our context, peace-building activities are to be innovative activities that create a peaceful environment to meeting social, and intellectual needs of participants in resolving conflict and preventing violence. In multicultural society settings, when a conflict fueled by extremist behaviors and ideologies is not prevented, reduced or settled, it gives rise to extremist violence which is taken as a short-cut method for resolving differences.

Participants are familiar with the conflict resolution and extremist violence prevention analysis, tools and techniques.
Participants develop their capacities to apply and use intercultural dialogue in countering extremist violence and hate speech.
Participant are familiar with the gender perspective and the gender mainstreaming concepts in the countering violent extremism field.
