The Global Center and Hedayah, the International Center of Excellence for Countering Violent Extremism, have partnered to develop and deliver a series of Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) trainings.  Conducted at the request of states and regional and international organizations, these trainings are tailored to the delegation’s request and cover topics such as the emergence and evolution of CVE, CVE in practice, and key elements in developing, implementing, and evaluating CVE programs. Trainings can also be designed to focus on CVE related subjects like education, media, sports and culture, and evaluation. Past trainings have been developed for various government and law enforcement delegations across Europe, East and West Africa, and South Asia, as well as for regional and multilateral actors.

Please see the joint letter by the Global Center and Hedayah for further details about the trainings.

For further information or to request a training, please contact Naureen Chowdhury Fink, Head of Research and Analysis, Global Center at or Patrick Lynch, Director, Training and Capacity Building, Hedayah at
