ACCA’s SUGPAT Youth Talks tackles Violent Extremism

Dr Ofelia Durante of the Institute for Autonomy and Governance (IAG), an NGO "at the forefront in shaping public policy for peace and good governance," takes her audience to a discussion and understanding on the vulnerabilities of the youth in ARMM to Violent Extremism, through the IAG's research on the issue, during AdZU-ACCA's SUGPAT Youth Talks #3: Youth Vulnerabilities to Violent Extremism in ARMM, held earlier today.


"The rapid rise of violent extremism (VE) has been a top concern both for governments and vulnerable communities around the world. In recent years, there have been increasing reports of young Muslims joining VE groups in the conflict-affected regions of Mindanao in the southern Philippines. Until now, there has been little data available that policymakers can use as a basis for interventions to respond effectively to this threat. This research aims to provide a preliminary picture of vulnerability of young people to VE and to inform appropriate responses from government agencies and local communities."
