The Hunger Project-Bangladesh (THP-BD) has started a program named “The Building Resilience Against Violent Extremism” (BRAVE) to counter the growing radicalization and violent extremism in Bangladesh through a community-led approach which addresses the drivers of radicalization and violence. The project will bridge two generations by creating a group of mentors from political, religious and social leaders, and at the same time creating a group of Prevent Violent Extremism (PVE) activists from youths and women in three upazilas of Bagerhat District including Bagerhat Sadar, Fakirhat and Mangla where heightened level of religious and political intolerance has been experienced in recent years. With an intention to set the benchmark of indicators for measuring the results and success of The BRAVE project, THP-BD awarded dRi to conduct a Baseline study. dRi conducted 732 Surveys, 25 FGDs and 20 KIIs in 5 upazilas of Bagerhat following Randomized Controlled Trial, three upazials in the intervention areas and 2 upazilas as control areas. The findings from the study will suggest necessary modification in program strategies including logical framework, monitoring evaluation plan and detail work plan for better outcome. The study will also identify the nature and extent of extremism and reactionary forces, hate and intolerance to other identities and define the strategic interventions required to address this problem.
