CVE Literature Review Training/Education
Evaluations of programs and activities can provide valuable information to guide program development, implementation, and modification. Such evaluations are critical for programs that seek to counter violent extremism (CVE), such as efforts by extremists to recruit, radicalize, and mobilize followers to violence. The RAND Program Evaluation Toolkit for Countering Violent Extremism is designed to support program self-evaluation and help those responsible for CVE programs determine whether their activities produce beneficial effects and outcomes. This companion report summarizes the methods used to develop the toolkit (Helmus et al., 2017) and provides additional background on its development.
