National CVE Strategy

In 2015 the Government of Albania adopted a comprehensive national CVE Strategy outlining a series of measures and actions to be taken by a wide range of government and public sector stakeholders working in education, law enforcement and social welfare focusing on three priority areas:

I) Community outreach and engagement

II) Countering extremist propaganda by promoting democratic values and

III) Draft long-term comprehensive CVE policies.

Following the adoption of the national CVE Strategy, the associated National Action Plan foresees a direct engagement and activities to be undertaken with government stakeholders at the local level as part of the efforts to tackle the phenomenon of radicalization and threats of violent extremism and provide examples of effective CVE engagement.
