This webinar builds on a report from YouthPower Learning grantee, Eurasia Foundation, that analyzed youth engagement programs in Tajikistan over the last ten years and the impact of those programs on preventing violent extremism. The Tajikistan case offers a good platform for the analysis of factors that affect the sustainability of peace-building initiatives. Dr. Parviz Mullojonov, a political scientist and historian, will share what was learned about the drivers of youth radicalization and violent extremism as well as how active youth participation for conflict prevention and peace-building initiatives can be promoted. Dr. Mullojonov will also discuss how these factors can be relevant in other contexts and countries. The Youth and Peace and Security co-champion, Gilbert Mwanedata, will also join this webinar as a consultant.
