Strategic Framework on preventing and countering violent extremism

Work has begun on developing a Strategic Framework for preventing and countering violent extremism and radicalisation across Aotearoa New Zealand.

This work is partially in response to Recommendation 4 of the Royal Commission, which states that government should ‘develop and implement a public facing strategy that addresses extremism and preventing, detecting and responding to current and emerging threats of violent extremism and terrorism’.  

In February 2022, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet brought together a cross-sector Working Group to collaborate on developing the Framework. The group includes civil society and community experts, academics, and government representatives.

The Working Group would like to know your thoughts and views on this challenge. We will be hosting open kōrero sessions to listen and hear from anyone who is interested in contributing to this discussion.  

There will be two opportunities to participate in the next few months: In March and early April, we want to hear from you on how we might define the problem of violent extremism and radicalisation. In May, we will discuss the draft Strategic Framework developed from the earlier conversations.

The March/April hui will be taking place online via zoom on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 29 March, 6.00pm - 7.30pm
  • Wednesday 30 March, 10.00am - 11.30am
  • Thursday 31 March, 6.00pm - 7.30pm
  • Saturday 2 April, 10.00am - 11.30am

If these discussions are of interest, you can register your attendance here.
