Senior Advisor on Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE)                                                                        

 

PROJECT TITLE

Senior Advisor for the National Action Plan on PVE (Under the Project Peacebuilding Fund)                                                               

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

 As Philippines grapples with the issue of preventing the further escalation of violent extremism in the aftermath of the Marawi siege, recruitment and radicalization by extremist groups continues. Prevention will require a multi-dimensional approach involving all relevant stakeholders—the security services, communities, local governments, traditional and religious leaders, women, and youth—to address the political, social, and economic drivers of radicalization.

A multi-dimensional approach will, in turn, require an alignment of the policies and programmes of the relevant government departments with the prevention objective, and integrated support by the UN system—when requested and appropriate—for the development and implementation of these policies and programmes. The process to develop the Philippines National Action Plan on Prevention of Violent Extremism, anchored by the Anti-Terrorism Council (ATC), the National Security Council (NSC) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) is already under way, and should provide—if developed using a cross-cutting and multi-disciplinary approach—the framework within which national and international partners could play their relevant roles.

Members of the UN system—UNDP, UNODC, UNICEF, and UN Women in particular—have already provided significant technical assistance, at their request, to national bodies such as the Office of the Presidential Advisor to the Peace Process (OPAPP), ATC, NBI, and relevant local governments, as well as non-governmental entities such as the major Moro fronts; civic actors; and religious leaders
