These are two of the core questions of the NUPI led EU project PREVEX that is now in its third year of research. In this episode of The World Stage, Marie Furhovden has invited three of the researchers involved in this project; Diana MishkovaLuca Raineri and Stéphane Lacroix to give a run through of the findings in the project so far. 

The three researchers have in the PREVEX project looked at prevention of violent extremism in three different areas: The Balkans, The Middle East and in the Sahel area. The three regions hold very different countries and cultures, but they all share some common denominators. So; press play on that start button and listen to this and more in the podcast episode! 

Towards the end, Steven Blockmans is giving his view on what the research from this project can be utilized in the EU. He is the Director at the Brussels based think tank CEPS. 

PREVEX is funded by the EU Horizon2020, under grant agreement number 870724.
