The SDG 16 and PVE Agendas: Different Currencies or Two Sides of the Same Coin?


With preventing violent extremism (PVE) and promoting inclusion, access to justice, and good governance (SDG 16) on the agenda of the opening of the 74th UNGA, ICAN’s Sanam Naraghi Anderlini and the Prevention Project’s Eric Rosand, discuss key challenges impeding progress on the global PVE and SDG 16 agendas, underscoring how they are two sides of the same coin.

The brief, informed by the 15 July 2019 experts’ roundtable organized during the High-Level Political Forum on the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals in New York, highlights practical ways policy and programming conversations around these two agendas at the global and national levels can strengthen and further empower, rather than, as is sometimes the case, impede progress on locally-led action to achieve these inter-related objectives.
