i have been invited to participate in the workshop on “Promoting regional security cooperation: what role for civil society and multilateral engagement?” on 26-27 April at the Institute of South Asian Studies in Singapore.
i have been asked to make opening remarks during the panel on countering violent extremism, and share some thoughts on how survivors of terrorism can help counter the appeal of violent extremism.
any suggestions on what to say and how to approach this are welcome. thank you in advance for your input.
Allah bless and keep you safe.
