Preventing religious radicalisation and violent extremism

Reports that examine the research evidence of radicalisation among young people and interventions to prevent extremism.



The aims of these reports, commissioned by the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales (YJB), are to:

  • collate and assess the existing evidence relating to preventing violent extremism
  • describe and evaluate the implementation of funded preventing violent extremism programmes within the youth justice system
  • identify emerging good and promising practice by relating the findings of the process evaluation to the evidence identified in the literature review
