The global Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism launched by the United Nations in 2015 has reached its first milestone in Lebanon, but the road toward implementation of a concerted strategy now lies ahead. The National Strategy to Prevent Violent Extremism (PVE), officially launched on Dec. 20 during an interministerial meeting, contains nine pillars agreed upon by representatives of all ministries. Each pillar represents a goal, which the ministries are now set to work together to achieve.
