WORDE Trains Local Civil Society Actors in Macedonia on Developing Community Resilience

The US Embassy in Skopje, Macedonia in partnership with Democracy Lab, invited WORDE to lead interactive workshops in Skopje and Tetovo to inform civil society representatives about the threat of radicalization to violent extremism; and to exchange good practices and lessons learned from developing multi-stakeholder community resiliency initiatives. During her week-long visit, Mehreen Farooq, WORDE Vice President, led additional meetings and briefings for key policymakers and activists, including the National Counter Terrorism / Countering Violent Extremism Committee; leaders from key municipalities participating in the international Strong Cities Network; and members of the Islamic Religious Committee.
