CVE work, and particularly counter-radicalisation at the general, specific and individual level will be organised into the pillars below
The arts as the domain of creation and freedom of expression is a powerful counter to the authoritarian, fanatical ideology of violent extremists and key to communal and national resilience.
The aim is to address radicalisation in learning institutions from elementary, tertiary to higher education levels.
The aim of this pillar is to increase the resistance or resilience of the Kenyan population to violent extremist ideologies, particularly those opposed to the values of freedom, democracy and interfaith tolerance.
Relevant laws and policy frameworks must support the preventive and mitigation measures in CVE.
The networks advancing violent extremism increasingly seek to attain their aims online. Efforts under this pillar include deploying counter narratives on-line, and sensitising media not to be unwitting transmitters of images or narratives that further the cause of terrorists.
In a democratic country, engaging political leaders at the local, county, and national levels is key to countering radicalisation.
The aim here is to ensure that radicalisation is met with the full force of law whenever and wherever possible.
This pillar will ensure that government institutions, political and religious leaders, and all actors with a mandate to counter radicalisation possess the right skills, tools and awareness.
