Youth Extremism Series

This series of briefing papers series on youth extremism investigates the relationship between citizen security and food security, with the intent to inform agriculture educators and youth development specialists in countries affected by violence. 
InnovATE is investigating gaps in the understanding of how citizen security and food security are interrelated, particularly in regards to the youth bulge and the growing phenomenon of youth violence. While street gangs and violent extremist organizations are not the same thing, there are many similarities. USAID commissioned a publication, “Street Gangs and Violent Extremist Organizations: Learning across Fields,” (Dininio, P. & Werbel J., 2016, August) to identify cross-disciplinary lessons for programming to address gang violence and violent extremism. As both kinds of violence affect agriculture, education and youth development, InnovATE believes a cross-sectoral approach is important.
