This approach consists in setting up programmes of de-radicalisation or disengagement aimed at re-integrating violent extremists (de-radicalisation) or at least dissuading them from violence (disengagement).

Such processes can be undertaken through specific programmes and can be delivered across a range of environments including at the individual and collective level.
