DHS S&T Developing a Research Roadmap for Countering Violent Extremism

The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate has developed a countering violent extremism (CVE) framework as part of its mission to conduct evidence-base research. The department outlined its aim to meet policy, operational and public needs “in order to save lives, reduce property losses, and enhance community resilience in the face of rapidly changing threats of extremist violence” in a statement.

According to the statement, the framework “recommends pursuit of research in the following four areas: diverting individuals from radicalization, preventing individuals from carrying out attacks or locations from being targeted, mitigating the impact of extremist events, and developing community and individual resilience to violence inspired by extremism.”

The goal of the current effort, Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) – Developing a Research Roadmap, is to further develop and implement the framework to incorporate information about the stakeholders it represents.

Research will be conducted with stakeholders engaged in all aspects of the framework to develop an understanding of how each organization defines its CVE goals. The information will eventually lay the foundation on which institutional context CVE will be developed.

This document details ways in which stakeholders will be recruited and participation elicited for the research project.
