A Framework for Prevention and Intervention Strategies: Incorporating Violent Extremism into Violence Prevention Efforts
framework is available that serves as a foundation to help communities build
resilience and capacity to prevent individuals from being inspired and
recruited by violent extremists. In 2014, stakeholders from the Greater Boston
area, with the support of the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of
Investigation, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and National
Counterterrorism Center, began the development of a locally driven framework
that promotes multidisciplinary solutions to countering violent extremism. The
framework, released earlier this year, contains sample problem areas, goals and
solutions, which will allow Massachusetts communities the flexibility to define
their problem areas, create achievable goals and objectives, and develop
realistic implementation plans. To access the framework, go to https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/usao-ma/pages/attachments/2015/02/18/framework.pdf.
