This program examines best practices for countering violent extremism leading to the production of a handbook for African security practitioners, derived from insights and recommendations generated from the Africa Center CVE series and from other sources. African governmental and nongovernmental defense/security and civilian leaders gain greater appreciation and understanding of the need for CVE in Africa, and they will be able to socialize and use the CVE handbook produced through the event.
