Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programme

Violent extremism is a problem set that crosses national, ideological and cultural boundaries, but current efforts to define and implement programmes that specifically target jihadist extremism are bedevilled by a number of flawed assumptions. CVE policy makers have adopted unsupported assumptions regarding both the causes of violent extremism and effective remedies.

Some of these assumptions play out in established CVE programmes, others create a bottleneck that prevents programmes from being launched until the assumed criteria can be met.
