Holistic Approach

  • Reintegration and aftercare programmes for violent extremists should form part of a more comprehensive approach to preventing crime and countering violent extremism.
  • Reintegration requires a holistic and multidisciplinary approach, with strong coordination of the different stakeholders involved. Governments should engage a broad range of actors, including civil society organizations, the private sector, NGOs, families and communities.
  • Reintegration programmes must take account of their cultural context and even if the majority of principles identified as good practices may be transferable, they should be tailored to specific national conditions and traditions.
