Counter Violent Extremism (CVE) programs have become an increasingly important piece of counterterrorism strategies in North America since 2001 in order to combat homegrown extremism. Recent events have brought this issue into the fore once again. However, these programs are relatively new and under-evaluated, with many commentators noting their inadequacies. The purpose of this research note is to explore some of the common critiques of CVE programs, and to consider new approaches which might make CVE efforts more effective in the years to come. This note also sets the base for new areas of CVE research moving forward.
