The EDURAD project aims to build on existing research and practices in order to develop a multi-actor, effective,and comprehensive educational approach to address both the radicalization process and the violence associated with it.The priority area on which the project focuses is the education sector, adopting a broad perspective that includes formal, informal,and non-formal education. This broad lens is intentionalas it ensures that the impact is far-reaching, more effective,and sustainable,and also involves both macro-level policy actors as well as grassroots local community actors taking into account cultural, religious,and social sensitivities. This approach on Preventing Violent Extremism through Education (PVE-E) is two-pronged. First, it involves the creation of interdisciplinary, local,and inter-sectorial networks called ‘PVE-E hubs’to produce new knowledge, enhance awareness,and build the capacity of teachers, parents/guardians, youth,community NGOs,and religious leaders. Second, it involves the development of pedagogical ‘PVE-E tools’in the form of online modules that can be taught in history, politics,or civics lessons, and training programmes with educators on how to successfully use them.
