Summary

The threat of violent extremism has risen sharply in West Africa over the past decade, becoming arguably the top threat to regional security. The increased concern has spawned a proliferation of efforts to prevent and counter violent extremism, yet there is little rigorous analysis assessing the effectiveness of these interventions. The USAID-supported quasi-experimental evaluation of Peace through Development II (PDEV II) conducted by the University of Pittsburgh aims to contribute to the nascent literature on countering violent extremism (CVE) and help practitioners in West Africa better understand what approaches are most effective.
