The primary objective of the two-day meeting is to take stock of current research and experience, while also identifying key areas for future peace and security interventions in the region, with a specific focus on the roles of women and youth in preventing extremism. It aims to identify priorities on the ground and discuss approaches and lessons learned at the regional and national levels and will be geared towards developing concrete recommendations and an action-oriented plan.
The meeting will bring together experts and practitioners from key stakeholders working in the areas of peace and security and preventing extremism, including international, regional and national organisations, centers of research and civil society organisations. The participants will identify key areas for future intervention to promote peace and security in the Euro-Mediterranean region. This will involve addressing root causes of violence and extremism, as well as understanding and strengthening the roles of women and youth, building on other major consultations and dynamics that already took place on these subjects in the region.
