Lessons learned from Danish and other international efforts on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) in development contexts

Evaluation Study 2015/3

Summary

The evaluation study collates lessons being learned from Danish efforts and those of other development actors on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) that can inform evidence based policy making and increase shared understanding on CVE related programming in development contexts.

Amongst other things the study concludes that there is scope to include CVE objectives in development programming in fragile settings where there are signs of radicalisation and that such activities fit best within stabilisation programmes where there is a mix of ODA and non-ODA funding. Furthermore, Denmark’s experience in Kenya suggests that it is possible to draw in domestic experiences but adapted to local contexts.
