Tackling the threat of violent extremism and its impact on human securities in East Java

Duration: October 2019 – October 2021
Budget: US$5,235,742 (UNTFHS: USD 1,563,486 ; pooled funding: USD 3,672,256)
Implementing Agencies: UNODC, UNDP, UN Women

The programme tackles the root causes and drivers of violent extremism in East Java by emphasizing how progress in counter-terrorism can be matched by equal progress in the areas of prevention, and how the application of human security provides a robust framework for long-term protection without the use of force or coercive measures for which there is considerable demand throughout the region. By working with a broad range of actors including religious leaders and community elders, the programme applies a ‘whole of society’ approach towards preventing and countering violent extremism.
