As the threat of violent extremism in the United States continues to grow and change, the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T), which serves as the primary source of scientific expertise for the Department, has strengthened its resolve to develop an agile, multidisciplinary, knowledge-based capability to counter this threat. To that end, DHS S&T created a Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Framework to guide evidence-based research intended to meet policy, operational, and public needs. The Framework is structured around several focus areas, including diverting individuals on the pathway of radicalization to violence; preventing individuals from carrying out attacks and targeting locations; mitigating the impact of extremist events; and developing individual and community resilience to violence inspired by extremism.
