Preventing violent terrorism in Europe: approaches, methods and strategies

Preventing violent extremism in Europe: approaches, methods and strategies

Publication date:
Moussa Bourekba, Researcher, CIDOB; Diego Muro, Senior Lecturer in International Relations, University of St Andrews (coords.)

In the recent two decades Europe has been faced with three major security challenges: increased home-grown terrorism, the phenomenon of foreign fighters, and the rise of the violent far right. In this situation, several European countries have produced a range of public policies and strategies with the aim of Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE). Number 128 of Revista CIDOB d’Afers Internacionals (CIDOB Review of International Affairs) seeks to analyse this phenomenon and to formulate some initial answers to the general research question: Is the PVE a mainstay of antiterrorist policies or does it constitute a new paradigm of action against violent extremism?
