A great result, un excellent résultat, ein tolles Ergebnis, een geweldig resultaat. Through hard work and thanks to a good cooperation with international colleagues, we have good practical VERA-2R manuals in four languages: English, French, German and Dutch. All professionals, trained in the VERA-2R in Europe and other continents, can now use manuals in their own language to improve their violent extremist risk assessment.
The usability of the VERA-2R is improved with lead and extra questions for qualitative information. 11 additional indicators have been added on non-violent criminal history, personal history and mental disorders, that all relate to violent extremism. The criteria of the five existing domains have been improved (1. Beliefs, attitudes, and ideology 2. Social context and intention 3. History, action and capacity 4. Commitment and motivation 5. Protective and risk-mitigating indicators).
The VERA-2R is used worldwide and is implemented in Europe, as a structured professional judgment approach. It is applicable for the assessment of risk of violent extremism and terrorism and for risk trajectories of men, women and youth.
The VERA-2R can be used to assess, monitor and manage risk changes of violent extremism over time.
