The Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Research Hub is a knowledge and advocacy platform that serves as a centre of excellence in research on policy, practice and theory in Kenya. It was set up in 2017 to monitor data arising from an increase in terror related attacks and arrests in the country.
The hub brings together researchers, policy-makers, practitioners and grassroots activists and community-based organizations from across Kenya to share and exchange ideas, build relationships, and network among scholarly and practitioner communities working on CVE in Kenya. Through this exchange and network, the CVE Research Hub supports and facilitates high-quality research, practice and policy that is evidence-based; founded on rigorous, high-quality research; inspired by best practices and successes; coordinated and connected across disparate stakeholders; and monitored and mapped for accountability, transparency and effectiveness. The hub is hosted and managed by the Centre for Human Rights and Policy Studies (CHRIPS).
We welcome researchers, policy-makers, practitioners, grassroots activists and community-based organizations active in CVE work and research in Kenya to register their interest in the Hub activities and networking opportunities by contacting CHRIPS with details of their organization and relevant CVE activities or research, in order to be kept informed of upcoming activities and opportunities.
