The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination will co-sponsor a private event at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, D.C. on Monday, September 16, 2019. The day-long workship titled, "What Does the US Do Overseas to Prevent Politically Motivated Violence, and What Could That Mean for Prevention in the US?" will adress how the United States's approach to preventing politically motivated violence overseas can be adapted to develop best practices in the domestic context.
The workshop's objectives include:
(1) Offer an Analytic Framework: Explore what is done in other countries facing similar situations, what is known about causes of violence, and successful interventions
(2) Gather Information: Understand where violence is most likely in the United States, what violence prevention activities are underway, and the gaps
(3) Bolster the Response: Initiate future research, planning and action
