A Framework for Prevention and Intervention Strategies: Incorporating Violent Extremism into Violence Prevention Efforts



A 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.
