Identify how experts, decision makers and first-line practitioners are framing the problem.
Build an international community of practice for sharing know-how among all stakeholders.
Use technology-based solutions (Big Data, Virtual reality) for analysis, prevention and counter-radicalization
Develop training and capacity building activities based on empirical evidences for end-users.
