How can counterterrorism workers build trust and inroads with family members of violent extremists?
This project aims to fill an important gap in suspicious activity reporting by tapping a crucial source: Those closest to extremists, their families. They are best poised and able to prevent terrorism, from deradicalization to alerting authorities.
The goal here is to provide insight into the technological, social, financial or other barriers to reporting in families.
