About the project

Bridging Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) and Crime and Violence Prevention (CVP) is a project principally focused  on the analysis of, and convergence between, violent extremism and other forms of youth violence and criminal activity. However, it also analyzes other global issues such as conflict, politics, and economics. Much emphasis is placed on the importance of gender and social inclusion in all our analyses. 

Our mission is to explore, analyze, and explain issues from a fresh and accessible perspective, while maintaining academic rigor.

We hope you enjoy our project, and please let us know if you would like to be part of this effort.
