Countering Violent Extremism -- The Use of Assessment Tools for Measuring Violence Risk: Literature Review

This literature review begins by providing a historical context on the common risk and protective factors used in assessments of violence; how they are determined ― delineating the differences between individual- and group-level factors, the organizations and agencies that conduct research in this area ― and examines the use of validated instruments from such fields as mental health, criminal justice, and psychology. Moving on from this historical background, the summary next focuses on the identity and purpose of existing instruments used specifically in the context of violent extremism, particularly from the international community.
