Countering Violent Extremism-Community Strategies
June 29, 2019 - July 3, 2019
CCWA will host visitors representing five countries from Bangladesh, Egypt, France, Pakistan and Singapore to examine community-based efforts designed to build strong community resistance to violent extremism and promote tolerance, including community policing and prison rehabilitation programs. Visitors will discuss how different sectors of American society work together to resist violent extremism, including government, academia, civil society, religious communities, and the private sector.
International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP)
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders, we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat
