This assessment report draws largely on the discussions during the two-day Dakar workshop around the challenges, opportunities, and needs for cities and local officials in the region to address the threat of violent extremism. The report is also informed by research and analysis from both scholarly and practitioners’ reports on preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE) in Africa, including a number of previous regional assessments undertaken by the Global Center.1 The report concludes with a set of recommendations on how cities and local officials can be supported in their P/CVE efforts in the region.
