Crafting peace and building a safer world


United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

#ExtremeLives is a project by UNDP in Asia-Pacific, supported by the EU, that explores themes and stories that bring us closer to understanding how to stop the spread of violent extremist ideologies. The project – featuring conversation-style interviews with former extremists, survivors, experts and prevention activists broadcasted on Facebook Live – is an innovative tool to achieve peace. It uses capacity-building and knowledge-sharing to provide a platform, information, and inspiration for vulnerable communities to discuss impacts of extremist narratives at both local and transnational levels.
