Preventing Violent Extremism in Uganda: The role of Resilience and Dialogue

This report explores two distinct but complementary approaches to addressing violent extremism at the local community level in Uganda. In the first approach, communities engage their agency in building resilience to the conditions that contribute to violent extremism. In the second, dialogue within and between communities, as well as between communities and the security and justice actors active in them, is used to address and resolve problems that might otherwise result in radicalisation to violent extremism.
