Appendix B

Workshop Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will organize a 2-day public workshop in Washington, DC. Through this workshop, the committee will convene a panel of individuals with expertise in health care, behavioral health, public health, homeland security, law enforcement, and countering violent extremism to discuss and examine applying health-centered approaches (e.g., public health, health care, mental and behavioral health) in community-level strategies to countering violent extremism (CVE) and radicalization. Countering violent extremism (CVE) consists of various prevention and intervention approaches to increase the resilience of communities to violent extremist recruitment narratives, provide nonviolent avenues for expressing grievances, educate communities about the threat of online recruitment and radicalization to violence, and other innovative community-based approaches.

Specific topics that may be explored in this workshop include

  • the evolving threat of violent extremism and radicalization within communities across America;
  • traditional approaches to countering domestic violent extremism and radicalization;
  • consideration of health-centered approaches (e.g., public health, health care, mental and behavioral health) to countering violent extremism and radicalization;
  • opportunities for cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary collaboration and learning among domestic and international stakeholders and organizations (e.g., community and/or faith-based, law enforce-

The committee will develop the agenda for the workshop session, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions.

Countering violent extremism consists of various prevention and intervention approaches to increase the resilience of communities and individuals to radicalization toward violent extremism, to provide nonviolent avenues for expressing grievances, and to educate communities about the threat of recruitment and radicalization to violence. To explore the application of health approaches in community-level strategies to countering violent extremism and radicalization, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a public workshop in September 2016. Participants explored the evolving threat of violent extremism and radicalization within communities across America, traditional versus health-centered approaches to countering violent extremism and radicalization, and opportunities for cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaboration and learning among domestic and international stakeholders and organizations. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
