The meeting aims to fully complement similar efforts in the region, in line with the European Union principles and their third parties. Participants will discuss their roles in P/CVE, exchange experiences, identify additional gaps and needs, and discuss relevant national efforts and donor assistance, in order to arrive at a more effective support to a multi-agency, whole-society approach to P/CVE in Albania. Conclusions and proposed follow-up actions at the national/regional level will be presented at the next meeting of the Regional Network of National P/CVE Coordinators (RNNC).
