Project Description

Countering violent extremism (CVE) refers to proactive efforts to address the conditions that enable violent extremist recruitment and radicalization. If this is an issue of interest to you, then here is the opportunity for you to assist the United States government’s work with Pakistan on violent extremism issues? U.S. Embassy Islamabad’s Office of Community Engagement is looking for an intern who can research and summarize global developments, interventions, and research in CVE, and assist in building a simple database of primary source resources on CVE interventions. The intern will search the full range of online information – media, CVE and related-field research databases, academic material, and reports from government/official sources and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), universities, and think tanks – related to regional and global CVE programs, products, best practices, and trends.
