The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Security Sector Program (IGAD SSP) conducted a two (2) day validation Workshop on the Report on ‘Regional Assessment and Mapping of Radicalization and Violent Extremism in the IGAD Region’ on 29th -30th October, 2015 at the Hilton Hotel Nairobi, Kenya.

 

In recognition of the notable security threats within the IGAD region, IGAD Security Sector Program (IGAD SSP) commissioned a regional mapping and assessment on radicalization and violent extremism in the IGAD region. This study aimed to gain an in-depth understanding of radicalization and violent extremism phenomena and their specific drivers in IGAD member states. The workshop aimed to engage both state and non-state actors in analyzing and enriching the report, and thereafter make a critical analysis of the findings. It was attended by delegations from IGAD Member States: Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan and Uganda; representatives from the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs): Human Rights Agency (HURIA) and Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM); IGAD’s strategic partners: European Union Special Representative for the Horn of Africa, Embassies of Italy, USA and France in Kenya, and non-IGAD member observers represented by their embassies/High Commissions in Nairobi; League of Arab States and  Nigeria. Due to reasons communicated to IGAD, South Sudan, a member state did not send its delegation to the workshop.
