The Institute of National Security Studies Sri Lanka (INSSSL) in collaboration with the Centre for South Asian Studies, Nepal and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung is organising a Regional Conference on ‘Preventing Terrorism and Countering Violent Extremism in South Asia’.
This is an event under the umbrella of the Consortium of South Asian Think Tanks (COSATT).
Given the importance of the topic in the current regional and global context, the South Asian think tanks have taken the initiative of hosting this event with the objective of bringing together academics, practitioners and experts in the field of defence and security studies to discuss and deliberate on best practices in preventing and countering violent extremism.
The event will be held on 3 and 4 April at Hotel Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo and the inaugural ceremony will be attended by Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Eng. Karunasena Hettiarachchi.
