Building Consensus and Setting Priorities for Research on Violent Extremism: Working Paper on Findings from Expert Consultations


This working paper presents the preliminary results of the RESOLVE Network Secretariat’s consultations with the network’s organizational partners and a diverse group of eighty prominent academics, practitioners, and policymakers, who shared their views on research priorities for the countering violent extremism (CVE) community of practice. The first in a series of working papers that take stock of existing research in the field, this report explores the major challenges associated with analyzing the drivers of violent extremism and suggests parameters for developing a consensus-based research agenda.
