Short Course on Countering Violent Extremism

Participants of the third delivery of #AustraliaAwards Short Course on Countering Violent Extremism – Using Social Media to Counter Radicalisation recently attended their pre-departure briefing in Dhaka.

This short course will enable participants to examine the role of social media in the radicalisation process and explore recent initiatives to counter online threats. Participants are encouraged to develop strategies for the deployment of counter-narratives and to propose activities that could reduce the effectiveness of radicalising elements operating within the social media networks of local communities here in Bangladesh.

#UniversityofQueensland will deliver this course in Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney from 24 August – 7 September 2019.

An alumna from a previous CVE short course, Ms. Mahfuza Liza, from Bangladesh Police, attended this PDB to provide insights and share lessons learned with the participants.
