The Strong Cities Network evaluated its support of Kumanovo’s Local Prevention Network in North Macedonia. This evaluation report documents the achievements and lessons learned in establishing and operationalising local multi-agency structure, as well as its impact in building community resilience to extremism and hate.
The report captures challenges with setting up and maintaining a local prevention network and strengthening community resilience, and provides recommendations to relevant government and non-government stakeholders for possible future strategies.
Beyond assessing the impact of project delivery and suggesting ways forward, the evaluation contributes to broader discussions of effective multi-agency frameworks for local prevention globally.
The evaluation informed SCN’s briefing on the value of Local Prevention Networks in preventing extremism and hate, which offers 10 lessons learned from our work across different geographies. The paper can be found here.
