Partnering in Practice: Preventing Social Polarization

The OPV, in cooperation with the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society, the Canadian Practitioners’ Network and the Students’ Commission is pleased to host Partnering in Practice: Preventing Social Polarization in Edmonton from November 30th to December 3rd, 2018. This conference is generously supported by UNESCO, the Edmonton Police Service, Edmonton Police Foundation, REACH Edmonton, and Public Safety Canada.

This conference will be comprised of two interrelated sections – the first section, Prevention in Practice, will resemble a more traditional academic conference. The second section, Mind the Gap!, will bring together practitioners from diverse sectors and youth leaders to engage in an interactive two-day exercise to facilitate connections and knowledge sharing between them. The activities are designed to create bridges by building trust between practitioners and youth as well as reflect on how our realities influence our personal trajectories by shaping our social identities.
