On the 24th of December 2015, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon created the Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism which he presented in his report (A/70/674) for the General Assembly to consider. The plan emphasises the need to act to prevent the further spread of violent extremism by addressing the root causes that lead to it through an effective global partnership that brings together knowledge and resources to tackle these issues. The recommendations presented have international, regional and national implications for all stakeholders. More specifically, with the emphasis on prevention as a long-term solution, he makes reference to the use of security sector reform programming as a mechanism to build the capacity of Member States to address violent extremism.
