In March 2019, select members of the Canadian Consensus Guidelines (CCGC; https://cpnprev.ca/canadian-consensus-guidelines-committee/) and the International Consensus Guidelines (ICGC; https://chaireunesco-prev.ca/en/network/guidelines-development-committee/) Committees were invited to take part in a mega-week, which comprised various conferences and workshops on themes related to preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE).
Among these, the UNESCO-PREV CHAIR and the Canadian Practitioners Network for Prevention of Radicalization and Extremist Violence (CPN-PREV; https://cpnprev.ca/) hosted a workshop entitled “The Prevention of Violent Radicalization: Evidence-Based Guidelines to Promote Efficient Interventions.”
During this workshop, the advice of CCGC and ICGC experts was solicited on recommendations for practice resulting from systematic reviews conducted by CPN-PREV. Experts were asked to review these recommendations according to their research/intervention expertise, the scientific literature they knew, or if all else failed, their professional intuition.
This consensus conference was the first step in order to transform these systematic review-based recommendations into official clinical guidelines for practice.
