The Centre for Human Rights and Policy Studies (CHRIPS) in partnership with the Institute of Development Studies (IDS, UK) convened CVE experts, practitioners and researchers from Nairobi, Mombasa, Kwale, Lamu, Isiolo and Garissa counties on 14 December, 2017, to launch a knowledge and advocacy network to counter and prevent violent extremism in Kenya.
The CVE research hub network brings together researchers, policy-makers, practitioners and grassroots activists and community-based organisations from across Kenya to share and exchange ideas, build relationships, and network among scholarly and practitioner communities working on CVE in Kenya. The hub is managed by CHRIPS and supported by the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Research Hub Project under the Newton Utafiti Fund Programme partnership. The grant is funded by the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered by the British Council.
CHRIPS welcomes researchers, policy-makers, practitioners and grassroots activists and community-based organisations active in CVE work and research in Kenya to register their interest in the Hub activities and networking opportunities by contacting, Ms. Angeline Nekesa with details of their organisation and relevant CVE activities or research, in order to be kept informed of upcoming activities and opportunities.
