CSEA participated in the 7th meeting of the Africa Policy Circle which focused on the central theme “Structural Inequalities as a driver for Violent Extremism”. The meeting provided a platform for wide-range discussions and paper presentations on issues including how disparities in income, justice and opportunity can push people towards violent extremism.

It also highlighted the need for sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) to develop more research on violent extremism and its drivers. Precious Akanonu joined other participants from African think tanks and civil society actors for these discussions. 

The meeting was held from October 5-6, 2017 in Mombasa, Kenya.
