Event Series on Countering Radicalization to Violence Concludes in Ottawa
“Hatred, violence, and all forms of extremism have no place in any society. It is essential that we continue bringing experts to the table, and to develop tools and resources using the most up-to-date knowledge to tackle these urgent and complex problems. There is a lot more we can continue to do together on this issue to intervene to stop individuals before they reach the point of violence.”
- The Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness
In December 2018, the Government of Canada launched the National Strategy on Countering Radicalization to Violence, which outlines Canada’s approach and priorities to prevent the kind of radicalization that leads to violence to begin with.
The Canada Centre collaborated with a number of diverse organizations to deliver the Event Series, including: the Canadian Practitioners Network for Prevention of Radicalization and extremist Violence (CPN-PREV), Moonshot CVE, Ottawa MERIT, British Columbia Shift, the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society (TSAS), Chaire UNESCO PREV, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), the Canadian Human Rights Commission, the United States Embassy, the British High Commission, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Norwegian Embassy, and the Public Policy Forum.
Member of Parliament for Hull-Aylmer, Greg Fergus, opened the event on collaboration in countering violent extremism in a francophone context, hosted by UNESCO-PREV, the Organisation international de la Francophonie, and CPN-PREV.
Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Karen McCrimmon, delivered opening remarks at a panel discussion hosted by the United States Embassy on connecting efforts to address online harm, which included representatives from Twitter, Google, VOX-Pol Network of Excellence, and the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate.
