WEBINAR: Impact of COVID-19 on PCVE: Setting the Research Agenda

About the Webinar

The ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic has driven countries to institute lockdowns among other restrictions, creating concerns that the after-effects might provide ground for violent extremist actions. However, there is currently a dearth of data and evidence to support these assumptions. To address this, ICEPCVE in partnership with the HORN Institute will host a webinar featuring regional researchers to discuss the evolving research agenda on P/CVE in the context of COVID-19.
