Summary

The Programme Office in Dushanbe trained some 320 representatives of local governments, teachers, parents from migrant families and people whose relatives have traveled to conflict zones as foreign terrorist fighters as part of a whole-of-society approach to tackling violent extremism and terrorist radicalization among youth in Tajikistan. The training courses were conducted in 12 districts of the Sughd and Khatlon regions from 24 June to 18 July 2019.

The training courses engaged a wide range of actors with the aim of preventing the spread of violent extremism at the grassroots level. The courses enhanced the capacity of local educators to integrate international good practices into their teaching curricula and sensitized parents on how to detect the first signs of radicalization among young family members.
