UNDP and the Permanent Missions of Norway and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to the United Nations invite you to join this event.
Behavioural Science utilises insights from disciplines such as Economics, Psychology, Neuroscience, and Sociology to provide a more complete picture of human motivations and behaviour. It aims to develop and test hypotheses that may provide insights as to why individuals behave as they do. These insights have been used by UNDP to strengthen their approach to Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE), which aims to address the rise of violent extremism using a development and peacebuilding approach. The behaviourally informed interventions have demonstrated that even small adjustments to programme activities can optimize initiatives by reflecting the reality of human behaviour.
At this event UNDP will present newly published guidance on the use of Behavioural Science for PVE entitled “Preventing Violent Extremism: Pioneering the Use of Behavioural Science”. This guidance has been developed based on the lessons learned in using Behavioural Science for PVE programming in UNDP Country Offices in Sudan, Yemen, Tajikistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan.
You are invited to join an exciting discussion featuring experiences from expert external partners Nudge Lebanon, B4Development and Beyond Conflict as well as UNDP Country Office staff in Sudan and Pakistan at the forefront of pioneering the use of behavioural science for PVE.
