The RESOLVE Network’s research training and curriculum initiative seeks to build the capacity of local researchers, develop higher standards, and promote ethical processes for conducting research on VE. The training and curriculum will be drafted by and informed by the experience of experts from academia, policymaking, and practitioners. It will specifically address how to conceptualize, conduct, analyze, and present research to inform and assess P/CVE policymaking and practice, both broadly and in specific geographic regions. The project is two-pronged in nature, including:
- Developing and implementing a curriculum and training-of-trainers (ToT) module, and
- The construction of an edited volume of works based on researcher experience to supplement the curriculum and training.
The core module will provide instruction and insight on experiences and issues associated with conducting research for P/CVE on a broad and global scale. In addition, the training curriculum and edited volume will incorporate regional overlays outlining considerations specific to research in particular geographic region. The regional overlay in the first edition of the training and edited volume (2018-19) will focus on researching VE in the Western Balkans.
