The Prevention Project and the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF) convened representatives of governments, the United Nations, think-tanks and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the private sector at the Brookings Institution to discuss the opportunities and challenges for mobilizing resources for preventing violent extremism (PVE). Among the questions the group addressed were: What are some of the challenges government donors face in resourcing community-led PVE work at home and abroad, and how can they be overcome? What are the advantages and disadvantages of moving into development funds for PVE? What is a realistic role for the private sector and foundations and where can their resources best contribute?
