Join the British Council and Georgia State University in partnership with ACT Alliance and World Council of Churches (WCC), for a conversation featuring a moderated conversation on how faith-based representatives, Mokhtar Alkhanshali and Jonathan Golden, are working in Yemen and Rwanda respectively to create sustainable economic development and contribute to humanitarian and peace-making efforts in these countries.

This public event is part of the Bridging Transatlantic Voices project funded by the European Union. Over a three year period (2015-2018), the British Council with partners from Georgia State University and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue will hold six workshops in six cities. These workshops engage civil society actors and policymakers from across the Atlantic on three themes: countering ideologies and narratives in CVE, the role of Muslim aid organizations in CVE; and how civil society groups engage youth and CVE. The goal of the workshops is to survey the field and examine the biggest challenges being faced by civil society and partnering with government. The workshops provide a snapshot of the field in the core thematic areas.
