The Compendium of Good Practices in the Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Violent Extremist Offenders presents good and promising practices in the rehabilitation and reintegration of violent extremist offenders in correctional settings, while also discussing how practices related to prison regime, security, intelligence, and risk assessment can impact these two processes. Its objective is to 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.
The compendium is divided in three main sections: Regime, Security, and Assessment; Interventions; and Community Reintegration. Each of these sections starts with an overview of key promising practices, and ends with good and promising practices associated with specific considerations for special prison populations. It is accompanied by the Countering Violent Extremism in Prisons Good Practices Guide, which 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 consider ways to improve their approaches.
