Abstract

The topic of violent extremism has increasingly become a part of policy discussions among domestic officials, international actors, academic researchers and civic activists in South East Europe over the past several years. This study, commissioned by the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), is aimed at better understanding the situation regarding violent extremism, and related planned and on-going governmental and non-governmental activities in preventing and countering radicalization and violent extremism leading to terrorism in SEE (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey). The research also aims to identify gaps and unnecessary overlap and contains conclusions and recommendations.
