Kenya-EU Partnership for the implementation of the Kenya CVE strategy

The intervention logic of the action is that if the partnership between the EU and Kenya also focuses on and is geared towards the transformation of the Kenyan approach to CVE, it will deliver a more transparent, accountable, inclusive and integrated approach to violent extremism, and the risks and negative implications of violent extremism on national and regional security and stability will be reduced.

The €500.000 top-up to this action, approved in May 2019, will mainly enable the National Counter Terrorism Center to scale up country-wide public awareness efforts, in order to reach and mobilise the wider public to join government efforts to counter violent extremism by reducing misinformation, demystifying key actors, and increasing awareness about the threat and recruitment strategies.

Main objectives

The overall objective of the action is the operationalisation of the recently adopted Kenya National Strategy to Counter Violent Extremism with particular emphasis on preventative aspects. The specific objective of the action is that the Centre fulfils its mandate of coordinator of all actors involved in the implementation of the strategy, to deliver a transparent, accountable, inclusive and integrated approach to CVE, which respects human rights and is conflict sensitive.
