Promoting Disengagement from Violent Extremism

J.M. Berger 17 Aug 2016

Drawing on ICCT’s Counter-Terrorism Strategic Communications (CTSC) Project’s Research Papers “Making CVE Work: A Focused Approach Based on Process Disruption” and “A Brief History of Propaganda during Conflict“, this Policy Brief lays out a multi-tiered framework for counter-terrorism strategic communications programmes and concrete evaluation of programme results. The Policy Brief proposes highly focused interventions which can be evaluated quantitatively and deployed across multiple platforms, using an evolving set of messaging themes that are informed by the results of evaluation and reiterated with adjustments to improve efficacy.

Read the Policy Brief.
