IVEO Knowledge Matrix

IVEO Knowledge Matrix

START surveyed the literature related to influencing violent extremist organizations (VEOs) and then encapsulated that information in a functional website to create the Influencing Violent Extremist Organizations (IVEO) Knowledge Matrix. The Knowledge Matrix illuminates 183 different hypotheses on how VEOs may be negatively influenced. Each hypothesis is examined in a literature review including qualitative and/or quantitative research. For functionality, all of the hypotheses and related literature reviews can be sorted by several different schemas.

The IVEO Knowledge Matrix can be accessed here.

More information about the project can be found on the About the Project page and guidelines for using the matrix can be found in the FAQs. A summary of the matrix characteristics can be found on the Descriptives page. If you have any questions or additions to the matrix, contact the START team.
