The Violent Extremist Risk Assessment 2 Revised (VERA-2R) is a risk-assessment instrument specifically designed to assess risks related to terrorism and violent extremism.
The VERA-2R is developed to support the judgement of risk assessment and risk management of terrorists and violent extremists. Professionals in the judiciary, penitentiaries, law enforcement authorities and security services are increasingly confronted with violent extremists and terrorists.
Existing instruments for conventional individual violence are not sensitive to known characteristics of terrorists and violent extremists. A specific instrument is therefore essential.
The VERA-2R is being used by professionals worldwide. This site provides relevant information for those interested in the subject of risk assessment for violent extremism and for those individuals and organizations that want to learn more about the instrument or want be trained in the VERA-2R.
