Open seminar

Counterradicalization Interventions. A Review of the Evidence

Date: 3 March 2022
Time: 15.00-16.15 (CET)

Counter-radicalization has become part and parcel of the counter-terrorism strategies of virtually every western nation. Yet despite the rapid diffusion of interventions, and the significant investment in them, there continues to be a dearth of evaluations. Even with some policies, practices and programs in place for close to two decades, it remains unknown as to whether they are targeting appropriate risk and protective factors, and whether they are at all effective.
In a new report, Counter-Radicalization Interventions. A review of the evidence, Michael Wolfowicz, David Weisburd and Badi Hasisi examine counter-radicalization strategies and interventions funded by governments or carried out under their auspices in democratic countries. It maps out the risk and protective factors specified and identify the degree to which they are evidence-based.

Welcome to a seminar where the report will be presented and discussed by the authors and a distinguished panel consisting of Jeppe Albers, Nordic Safe Cities, Dr. Lorne Dawson, University of Waterloo, and Camilla Salazar, Fryshuset. The discussion will be moderated by professor Jerzy Sarnecki:
