Partnerships for a Tolerant and Inclusive Bangladesh (PTIB)

Project description

Partnerships for a Tolerant and Inclusive Bangladesh (PTIB) is a multi-year initiative to understand and prevent violent extremism (PVE) in Bangladesh. The first phase of the project was piloted from 2016 – 2017, the success of which resulted in its continuation. The project responds to the Secretary-General’s call for every country to develop a coherent and contextual strategy to prevent violent extremism, while reaffirming the need for inclusive institutions, transparent politics, and a commitment to fundamental human rights. PTIB seeks to build local research capacity, integrate the findings into project activities and input lessons learned into national, regional and global PVE discussions

What we do
