Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism: A Development Framework for Non-Profit Organisations in Trinidad and Tobago


Commonwealth Secretariat


This document is intended to support departments and officers of the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (GoRTT) to effectively engage and capacity-build non-profit organisations (NPOs) for Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (PCVE) activity.
The Framework provides practical advice and guidance on how to engage NPOs, assess and develop the capacity of prospective delivery agencies, co-design interventions and manage risk. All statistics quoted in this document are available in the public domain.
While principles from this Framework are applicable to all NPOs, due to the nature of the challenges in Trinidad and Tobago, this document is primarily focused on engaging, working with and supporting Muslim NPOs to prevent and counter violent extremism.
