The workshop, delivered by Labinot Leposhtica, legal officer at, focused on the state’s vision for preventing radicalism and the violent extremism that leads to terrorism, as well as reflecting this vision to the public.

Eleven representatives from the aforementioned institutions participated in the workshop, three of whom were women.
