Job Location
Job Presentation




Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism and Terrorism (PCVET) requires an emphasis on dialogue, cooperation, and partnerships between relevant state actors and non-state actors. The term “whole-of-society approach” is now commonly used in international discussions around PCVET to recognize the insufficiencies of government-only approaches and the key contributions of non-governmental actors. 
 Recognising the above, the government through the Minister of National Security did indicate in a meeting organised jointly by Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) and the International Centre for Migrations Policy Development (ICMPD) to launch a 22-month project titled Prevention and Countering Violent Extremism and Terrorism: The role of Civil Society and the Private Sector that government was open to the “whole-of-society approach” in solving the problem of migration related violent extremism and terrorism which is raining havoc to the country’s neighbours (Burkina Faso, Mali and Nigeria). 
 The objective of the project is to contribute to an effective, transparent and accountable border security management architecture in Ghana. The project is being implemented in 5 border communities which include Paga, Hamile, Aflao, Elubo and Ashaiman.
