The project is implemented in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), as well as the UNDP country offices and their local partners in the concerned countries. The research team, adopting a highly participatory approach, developed and deployed a comprehensive survey/questionnaire that examined push-and-pull factors in the domain of violent extremism. The questionnaire provides information on local communities’ experience with armed groups; recruitment dynamics; the use, spread, trade, and ownership of small arms and light weapons; perceptions of violent extremism; and potential approaches to countering and preventing violent extremism.
The data gathered from these countries will inform the production of a regional report building on UNDP’s previous work in this sphere.
