Briefs and Policy Reviews

Overview

Terrorism and conflict prevention policies and programs should aim at reducing the risk in ways other than investigating and locking people. The tools for doing so span the entire lifecycle of terrorism from preventing recruitment, to limiting the influence of terrorist messaging, to intervening with individuals who are at risk of taking violent action, to supporting programs that lower the chance that people who are incarcerated commit terrorist-related crimes again. The same can be applied to conflict management and other development issues.
