The RESOLVE Network Research Advisory Council supports RESOLVE’s mission to develop and deliver high-quality, methodologically rigorous research and insights on violent extremism to policymakers, practitioners, and academics around the world. Populated by leading experts and scholars in the field, Council members conduct three main activities:

  • Peer-review RESOLVE Network original research to enhance research quality and reach,
  • Guide and advise RESOLVE Network research initiatives and research capacity building efforts, and
  • Author RESOLVE Network products distilling research and thought leadership into actionable recommendations for policy and practice.


Council Leadership and Member Recruitment 


The Council is led by the Council Director and Associate Council Director, who coordinate activities amongst members, lead efforts to recruit new members, and facilitate communication and guidance between the RESOLVE Secretariat and Council members as needed. Council membership is comprised of a select group of leading researchers and practitioners with a proven track record of engagement on research on violent extremism and conflict. Membership is by invitation only. All efforts will be taken to ensure that the Council is diverse in nature and representative of a broad spectrum of thematic and geographic subject matter expertise.
