September 2019 | CVE Frontiers

This month, the RESOLVE Team brings to you a selection of articles from the frontiers of countering violent extremism research, practice, and policy. These topics emerged at the 2019 RESOLVE Forum Network Meeting as research priorities for the future of countering violent extremism the next 5-10 years. Although some research exists on the nexus of climate change and conflict, crime and terrorism, and technology and counterterrorism, knowledge gaps remain on ecoterrorism, low-tech terrorism, child conflict trauma effects, gender dynamics, cybersecurity and closed online spaces, proxy warfare, and artificial intelligence—in relation to violent extremism. As the threat evolves in the digital age, it is time to proactively push the boundaries of CVE research and explore the frontiers of the known unknowns.
