Second Session of School of Public Policy Mother Teresa

Skopje, November (1-3rd, 2019), 2019, Hotel Garden, Ohrid,

Preventing and countering violent extremism



The School of Public Policy “Mother Teresa”, as a part of a network of twenty schools political studies organized in cooperation with the Council of Europe, organized a weekend session in Ohrid in November (1-3rd, 2019) on the topic of Prevention and Countering of Violent Extremism (P/CVE). The session had five speakers that improved the knowledge of the participants of the School on this topic. Participants of the School are mid-career professionals (25-45 years) from the public and private sectors with advanced knowledge in the field of public policy and readiness to work on improving liberal democracy in Macedonia. The knowledge they acquired at the Seminar will help them improve public policies and better tackle the threat of violent extremism. The School worked on the organization of the event in September and October 2019, including selection of participants, contacting and agreeing upon the speakers, preparing seminar materials and so on. The methodology of the seminar was based on lectures followed by discussions among participants, as well as a simulation game. Specific tasks and roles were to be given to our participants by the lecturers. The Center for Research and Policy Making (CRPM) was the stakeholder involved in this seminar. Overall, the web site of the Center communicated to the public the activity to the general public, the alumni and the prospective students. In principle the internet news serves as a tool for greater visibility of the School’s activities.
