Alternatives to Political Violence

Boston, MA & Montgomery, AL: February 28 - March 9, 2012


Twelve individuals, including community leaders, academics, and relevant government and security officials from Ireland and from Northern Ireland were selected to engage with their American counterparts to examine the ways in which societies can address the growth of violent extremism. This programme explored the role of non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, community leaders, and government agencies in encouraging people to express political, social, and cultural identity through constructive and non-violent channels.
