NSW Countering Violent Extremism Program Evaluation
Client: NSW Department of Communities and Justice
In November 2015, the NSW Government committed $47 million for a suite of measures to respond to the rise of violent extremism, referred to as the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Program. The CVE Program aims to ensure that violent extremists are disengaged from violent extremism, at-risk individuals are diverted from violent extremism, and community resilience in NSW in prevention of and response to violent extremism is improved.
The NSW Department of Communities and Justice commissioned ACIL Allen Consulting to conduct a systemic evaluation of the suite of projects initiated under the CVE Program. The purpose of the evaluation was to examine the collective impact of the CVE Program.
