Preventing Religious Radicalisation and Violent Extremism: A Systematic Review of the Research Evidence

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The purpose of this systematic review is to examine the scholarly literature on
the process(es) of radicalisation, particularly among young people, and the
availability of interventions to prevent extremism. The review was undertaken
to inform the national evaluation of the Youth Justice Board for England and
Wales’ (YJB) preventing violent extremism programmes within the youth
justice system, and as such, represents one of the research outputs from that
study. The full evaluation report, Process Evaluation of Preventing Violent
Extremism Programmes for Young People, is to be published by the YJB
alongside this review.
