As part of its partnership with The Commonwealth, the Global Center presented a baseline/foundation training on preventing and countering violent extremism in prisons entitled "From Theory to Practice”, held in Port of Spain in cooperation with the Trinidad and Tobago Prison Service. The workshop was the first in a series of trainings, aimed to establish a shared understanding among 34 senior corrections officers of international recommendations on preventing and countering violent extremism in prisons, and how these might be applied in a domestic context. The training provided a foundational awareness of international standards of good practice in the management of violent extremist offenders, and supported selected participants to better understand factors that build to radicalization and recruitment to violent extremism in correctional settings.
