Watch the following playlist of Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) interviews produced by the Centre for Human Rights and Policy Studies (CHRIPS).
The first 6 – minute interview, ‘Security and Safety challenges in CVE Research in Kenya’, shows how CVE practitioners can protect themselves while in the line of duty. In the interview, Ms. Salome Nduta of the National Coalition of Human Rights Defenders-Kenya (NCHRD-K) talks about the challenges, potential options and recommendations for enhancing the security and safety of CVE practitioners.
Situational awareness is key when carrying out sensitive CVE work. It is necessary to be aware of the interests of all related parties in the given contexts. Researchers and organisations working on CVE should analyse the threats they are likely to face and understand the unique risks that a particular project would bring.
Establishing research networks and collaborations provides the necessary flexibility to adapt to a wide range of arising challenges. It enables shared learning, new research opportunities, establishing new research projects, joint applications for funds, and technology transfer.
