Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) forms an important part of ICCT’s work on the prevention of violent extremism, terrorism and conflict. ICCT’s work focuses on the early identification of threats and more importantly analyses the effectiveness of measures available to respond to these threats. Besides carrying out research ICCT also provide technical assistance through tailor-made workshops focused on different aspects of CVE ranging from civil society engagement to education reform to the reintegration and rehabilitation of former violent extremist offenders. The Centre aims to assist governments in the development of a comprehensive multi-stakeholder CVE approach including actors from local and national government, such as, youth, women, victims of terrorism and civil society.
