Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) is a way of addressing violent extremism in communities, encompassing programs, policies and activities that are intended to prevent individuals and groups from radicalizing to violence and to rehabilitate individuals who have engaged in violent extremism. With funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) is releasing a series of CVE-related training courses in 2017 and 2018. All courses are designed to provide community-focused, rigorously-researched and academically-informed instruction on Countering Violent Extremism.
