The Global Center, together with local Indonesian facilitators, implemented two frontline training workshops for Indonesian prison staff (5-8 November and 10-13 November), in cooperation with the Indonesian Directorate General of Corrections. The Global Center team supported a team of Indonesian trainers to successfully deliver the advanced training on the management of violent extremist offenders to prison staff posted to maximum security facilities in Indonesia. The training targeted 50 prison staff from facilities on Nusakambangan Island, including the newly operational Karanganyar prison. These trainings are part of the third phase of the program, which builds upon the Train the Trainers program conducted in phase two to embed the training program into the Indonesian prison service.

This training workshop is part of the Global Center’s overall Countering Violent Extremism in Prisons (CVE-P) program, which provides training and technical assistance to prison services on preventing and countering violent extremism. The project was established in partnership with the Global Counterterrorism Forum. The program is funded by the governments of Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, Netherlands, Norway, and New Zealand.
