JUSTRAC- Rule of Law and Countering Violent Extremism

JUSTRAC- Rule of Law and Countering Violent Extremism

Muflehun participated at an invitation-only  Justice Sector Training, Research and Coordination Symposium by the The Rule of Law Collaborative at the University of South Carolina. The topic was “Exploring the Relationship Between the Rule of Law and Violent Extremism in the Middle East.”

The symposium examined how state-based formal institutions—particularly those charged with upholding the rule of law, such as police, courts and corrections—can contribute to the kinds of grievances that are associated with violent extremism. The symposium also examined avenues for constructive institutional reform within the context of violent extremism. Participants considered how injustices, both large and slight, can feed into violent narratives used by extremists and how more inclusive approaches towards governance may increase public trust.
