Countering Violent Extremism: Methods, Processes and Outcomes
Does Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) work?
Despite the growing profile of efforts to prevent and counter violent extremism (CVE), there is much to learn about its effectiveness. Through a narrative synthesis of the literature on CVE programmes delivered in the UK and internationally, this project seeks to understand what we know about how to prevent people from becoming involved in violent extremism.
By mapping the challenges and opportunities facing CVE initiatives, the project examines the following questions:
- How is CVE conceptualised?
- Who are CVE interventions targeted at?
- What methods are used in CVE?
- Who delivers CVE interventions?
- What measures of success are used in evaluating the outcome of CVE initiatives?
- How effective are CVE programmes?
