Conducting P/CVE Assessment in Conflict Environments: Key Considerations

Cover Page

This chapter provides guidance for those conducting research to assess initiatives aimed at preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE) in conflict environments. This chapter will provide an overview and background of P/CVE assessment and, using the case of Afghanistan as an illustrative example, present some of the key challenges and opportunities inherent in them, particularly those conducted in conflict zones. The chapter then discusses some of the key considerations that those embarking on an assessment should keep in mind when designing and implementing their studies, as well as potential workarounds to some of the more significant issues and recommendations for those conducting assessments or embarking on similar studies.
