Summary: This document outlines a methodological framework for conducting an extremism or terrorism assessment. It may be used to evaluate, and program for, a situation in which there appears to be a significant risk of violent extremism. Alternatively, it may facilitate a better understanding of the forces and dynamics that already have produced significant levels of violence, so as also to help practitioners design interventions that can mitigate the impact of such forces and dynamics. Because the expertise, policy documents and scholarship that were used in its design were often related to violent Islamic extremism, this framework is particularly suited to such a phenomenon. However, the framework was designed explicitly as a generic tool, meant to facilitate analysis of, and programming for, violent extremism in general.
