OODA - Act

About OODA - Act

Finally, once a course of action has been chosen, it needs to be implemented. In this project, this phase refers to implementing either preventive, normalising or suppressive programmes designed to curb the process of radicalisation that could lead on to violence. In SAFIRE, we talked with individuals who had de-radicalised about their experiences and we evaluated an intervention programme. This work provides insights into what is necessary to affect the radicalisation process, and how to carry out radicalisation research in terms of research paradigms and ethical constraints.
