The Compendium of Good Practices in the Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Violent Extremist Offenders highlights good and promising practices for supporting the rehabilitation and reintegration of violent extremist offenders in correctional settings. The compilation endeavors to (1) inform understanding and improve decision-making regarding the implementation of approaches for the rehabilitation and reintegration of violent extremist offenders, specifically in the correctional services of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, although it has value in other jurisdictions; (2) integrate established with emerging promising practices in this field; (3) translate key existing documents into an applied and accessible resource for use by various stakeholders; and (4) include good and promising practices associated with women, juveniles, and foreign fighters convicted of terrorism offenses, and prison and probation services where issues associated with violent extremism may be less frequent.
This website includes an overview of the key promising practices for the different sections of the compendium: to read the full compendium, please follow the link below.
The Countering Violent Extremism in Prisons Good Practices Guide is intended to help prison authorities design and review their approaches to managing, rehabilitating, and reintegrating violent extremist offenders and identifying and addressing radicalization and recruitment to violent extremism in prisons. It translates available good and promising practices identified across a number of key international and regional documents into an accessible framework of probing questions to help prison authorities improve their approaches. Users can consult this document together with the compendium or as a standalone.
