Summary: This paper explores key methodological challenges associated with the design, monitoring and evaluation of preventing and countering violent extremism programming, and discusses the applicability of solutions from the fields of peacebuilding and development. The paper draws on the latest developments in the field, lessons and insights from DM&E of peacebuilding and development programming that the authors consider relevant to P/CVE, as well as the authors’ professional experiences designing, monitoring and evaluating P/CVE programming. In addition, the authors conducted selected Key Informant Interviews in order to gain access to specialized knowledge on specific topics.
This paper focuses on P/CVE programmatic efforts implemented in countries where most political and extremist violence exists, in most cases countries affected by weak governance and rule of law, fragility and violent conflict. The findings in this paper might also be, likely to a lesser extent, relevant for P/CVE initiatives in North America or Europe that focus on individual de-radicalization efforts.
