Review of Programs to Counter Narratives of Violent Extremism: What Works and What are the Implications for Government?

Rachel Briggs and Sebastien Feve, Institute for Strategic Dialogue

This report, commissioned by Public Safety Canada, aims to review the state of knowledge about efforts to counter narratives of violent extremism and make recommendations for governments, such as the Canadian government, toguide their emerging work in this sensitive area of policy. In order to make sense of the complex range of actions and initiatives described as ‘counter-narratives’, the report sets out a ‘counter-messaging spectrum’, which is comprised of three main types of activities: government strategic communications, alternative narratives and counter-narratives.
