About the Project
Many developing countries with elevated levels of terrorist recruitment and radicalization lack resources for, and face other obstacles in, developing viable CVE intervention programs. These challenges can include lack of capacity, lack of political will or support, legal restrictions, fear of police surveillance, cultural stereotypes that neglect to identify women as potential perpetrators of terrorism, and broader cultural stigmas associated with mental health. Despite these constraints, there is a growing awareness that early intervention programs focusing on at-risk individuals, both men and women, are a necessary complement to broad-based terrorism prevention activities on one hand, and security-focused interdiction efforts on the other hand. The Preventing Terrorism through Community-Based Interventions project will build the foundation to set up a community-based interventions model in Bangladesh and in Macedonia with a referral mechanism and identify, engage, and train relevant stakeholders (e.g., mental health professionals, educators, religious leaders, etc.), develop training materials tailored to national and provincial contexts, and mentor and advise individuals conducting early interventions.
