IRD Activities

  • Initiative iDove

    iDove initiative was jointly launched by the African Union Commission (AUC) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in February 2017 to highlight the importance of the soft power of religion in preventing violent extremism (PVE) through innovative, youth-led approaches. By building on existing initiatives and supporting young people’s engagement and ideas, iDove strives to develop non-violent approaches and solutions that strengthen social cohesion and create a forum for exchange and learning. The first iDove Intercontinental Youth Forum will introduce in December 2019 the concept and different means of preventing violent extremism drawing on the soft power of religion and dialogue. This forum will also serve as an exchange and experience sharing platform bringing together iDovers from Europe, Africa and the Middle East who participated in the previous forums and iDove activities to share their iDove journeys. This Forum is organized in collaboration with the Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers and with a support by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.
