Youth Empowerment for Peace and Resilience Building and Prevention of Violent Extremism in Sahel and Surrounding Countries

Title: Youth Empowerment for Peace and Resilience Building and Prevention of Violent Extremism in Sahel and Surrounding Countries

Description: The “Youth Empowerment for Peace and Resilience Building and Prevention of Violent Extremism in Sahel and Surrounding Countries Guide” (Sahel Guide) is intended for teachers and is a timely intervention that supports the capacity-building of secondary school teachers and teacher educators to address violent extremism. It understands that Africa’s teeming youth population, if not harnessed creates an opportunity for radicalization and extremism. Therefore, aims to engage, support, and educate youth on peace, resilience building and the prevention of violent extremism.

The Guide opens with the dynamics of violent extremism in the Sahel and surrounding countries to provide the background context. It then looks at the role of education for peace, resilience building and the prevention of violent extremism before going into specific key elements and tools for teachers. These include how to create spaces and opportunities for ethical reflections and community engagement along with core competencies for resilience-building and how to use transformative pedagogy. It also includes information on the importance of assessment of the learning and a chapter on activities and methodologies that teachers can use to engage learners.
