A Teacher’s Guide on the Prevention of Violent extremism

The role of education in preventing violent extremism and de-radicalising young people has only recently gained global acceptance. An important step in this direction was the launch, in December 2015, of the UN Secretary-General’s Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism which recognises the importance of quality education to address the drivers of this phenomenon. 

Published by UNESCO, this guide aims to provide practical advice on when and how to discuss the issue of violent extremism and radicalisation with learners and help teachers create a classroom climate that is inclusive and conducive to respectful dialogue, open discussion and critical thinking.
