Development of Risk Assessment Schemes for Channel

This project will develop a prototype risk assessment scheme for individuals referred to Channel through the refinement of existing guidance and the production of a new process.

The resulting deliverables will help professionals to better understand the risks and vulnerabilities associated with a particular case and to identify how the individual may be best supported.

The prototype will assess:

  • the risk the individual faces of being drawn into violent extremism
  • the risk the individual poses to society if they get drawn into violent extremism.

In developing a prototype scheme, we will follow Logan and Lloyd’s guidelines on Structured Professional Judgement approaches closely. We propose to employ a range of methods to achieve these steps, including:

  • document analysis
  • practitioner surveys and interviews
  • systematic review
  • base rate study
  • reliability testing.
