Training on Preventing Radicalization and Extremism Leading to Terrorism – Nigeria

This will be the seventh training under CCCPA's PRELT program. The course was developed by the Cairo Center and is the first of its kind in Africa. CCCPA's unique approach to preventing radicalization and extremism leading to terrorism is grounded in the tolerant teachings of Islamic Sharia law. As such, the training aims to equip local leaders with the necessary knowledge and skill sets to refute extremist ideologies and narratives and to develop alternative, positive and inclusive narratives and messages, based on the tolerant teachings of Islamic Sharia. 

Teaching Method/Learning Objectives

The training is based on interactive and practical group work. It covers a wide variety of topics, including understanding the context of radicalization and extremism by utilizing conflict analysis tools; understanding how terrorist organizations frame conflict through narratives and messaging; and exploring the individual pathways to terrorism.

Target Group

This training focuses on empowering local Nigerian leaders and influencers (religious, tribal, women, and youth leaders) to stem radicalization, and recruitment to terrorist organizations, in their communities.

Although the current scope of the training remains on Nigeria and Somalia, CCCPA is planning to expand the geographic scope of the training to include other affected regions in the African continent, namely North Africa and the Sahel and Sahara regions. 


This training is funded by the Japanese Government as part of the ongoing UNDP project “Consolidating Peace, Security and Stability in Africa III - 2017-2018”.
