Community reporting on violent extremism by “intimates”
To promote early intervention strategies, Countering/Preventing Violent Extremism (C/PVE) policies internationally seek to encourage community reporting by “intimates” about someone close to them engaging in terrorist planning. Yet historically, there has been scant evidence around what either helps or hinders “intimates” to share concerns with authorities.
Researchers from the University of Huddersfield (UK) address that deficit here through a “state of the art” assessment of what is currently known about effective related C/PVE approaches to community reporting, based on key findings from a ground-breaking Australian study and its UK replication. The consistency of qualitative findings from nearly 100 respondents offers new paradigms for policy and practice.
