August 2021 | Deradicalization Programs: Recommendations for Policy and Practice
This month, RESOLVE highlights recommended readings from our latest Policy Note, "Deradicalization Programs: Recommendations for Policy and Practice.” Author John Horgan explains how and why people leave violent extremist movements, which constitutes actionable knowledge that brings immense practical benefits. The policy note provides recommendations on how deradicalization programs can and should be evaluated to prove far more beneficial than is currently believed. This What We’re Reading digest was recommended by the author to give more background on deradicalization theory and processes, recidivism, country-specific experiences of disengagement and deradicalization, and previously implemented deradicalization and reintigration models.
