This episode covers the first part of a conference given by André Gagné during the first Global Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Forum organized by the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS). The event was held on November 16 & 17, 2016 at Concordia University and was made possible by the generous support of the Consulate General of the United States in Montreal. This forum brought together experts and practitioners from academia, the government and civil society. The goal was to discuss and find solutions to the current threat that violent extremism is posing to societies across the world.
