The Role of Trauma and Mental Health in Violent Extremism .

Paper | July 22, 2022

Research completed by King's College London under a Chemonics-led programme.

This policy paper assesses the impact of non-ideological risk factors on radicalisation and violent extremism, namely mental health and trauma. It argues that funding is needed for large-scale interdisciplinary research in this area. Prevention and deradicalisation programming will greatly benefit from a wider evidence-base of mental health-related vulnerability factors.
