Virtual Launch of the IIJ Criminal Justice Practitioner’s Guide for Addressing REMVE

On July 14, 2021, Senior Research Fellow Colin P. Clarke participated in the virtual public launch of the International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law’s Criminal Justice Practitioner’s Guide for Addressing Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremism (REMVE), a new guide offering recommendations for criminal justice actors on how to counter the growing REMVE threat. The event gathered practitioners and subject-matter experts from the United States, Germany, and Norway to discuss the scale and complexity of the REMVE threat, as well as solutions that partners in the global community can take to effectively address the transnational dimension of the issue. In his remarks on the nature of terrorist designations and proscriptions across several nations, Dr. Clarke noted that “a comprehensive strategy to counter violent far-right extremism remains elusive,” even though countries “have cooperated well to combat Salafi-jihadist groups.”
