Expert Meeting: CVE and Counter-Narratives in the Media

On 26 November 2017, the WANA Institute are gathering 40 international and local experts to discuss the role of media counter-narratives in countering violent extremism (CVE) in Jordan.

The WANA Institute will present its research findings, which analyse examples of radicalisation counter-narratives from four media genres broadcasted during Ramadan 2017: comedy, drama, advertisement, and cartoons.

The Institute will also present a CVE Charter at the event, which provides guidelines for various CVE stakeholders: government bodies, development practitioners, and civil society actors. The charter is a valuable starting point from which to standardise the CVE approach in Jordan and highlight areas which most need attention.

The research is part of a project funded by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Jordan that attempts to understand the relationship between human security and effecting measures for countering extremism. The publication of the full paper is expected later this year.
