Initiatives to prevent and counter terrorism and violent extremism are rarely evaluated and are often designed on the basis of untested assumptions. Researchers developed and reviewed an inventory of 48 evaluations conducted between 2013 and 2017 to draw practical lessons and recommendations.
Terrorism, Security & Resilience
RAND Europe engages in wide-ranging work for clients at both national government and EU levels on the topics of terrorism and counterterrorism, countering violent extremism, operational information-sharing, counter-insurgency, stabilization and security sector reform. In a climate of uncertainty and rapidly evolving threats, we equip clients with the evidence-based research they need to inform their decision-making.
RAND is at the forefront of understanding and assessing new developments in security threats, vulnerability and resilience, serving as a world leader in this area of policy research.
