SAN-PVE serves as a networking, knowledge-sharing and learning platform for South Asian practitioners working in initiatives that support preventing and countering violent extremism leading to terrorism with the purpose of gathering and disseminating relevant regional information and good practices.

SAN-PVE provides its members with relevant tools and opportunities to develop effective responses to prevent and counter violent extremism:

  • Networking: SAN-PVE allows members to know who is doing what in the PVE field in South Asia and how to contact them.

  • Knowledge gathering and sharing: SAN-PVE identifies the latest challenges and trends in preventing and countering violent extremism. It provides a link to the most updated research, good practices, events, and successful evidence-based initiatives that could inspire other practitioners and/or countries to develop their own measures.

  • E-learning platform: SAN-PVE provides training and updated knowledge on preventing and countering violent extremism, granting free access to its members to e-learning content, manuals, training materials, thematic webinars, podcasts and others.

SAN-PVE is not a law enforcement or intelligence network. The sharing of sensitive information, intelligence or any other information related to on-going criminal activity is excluded.

SAN-PVE is generously funded by the following donors: The Federal Republic of Germany (January to December 2020) and Japan (since April 2018 to date).
