The aim of the Nordic Conference on Violent Extremism is to present such empirical and theoretical research on violent extremism and its prevention that
- is carried out by researchers based in the Nordic countries and/or
- addresses violent extremism in one or more Nordic country.
The conference has been organized since 2017 and it has drawn together nearly 200 researchers, practitioners and policy-makers to discuss current developments and new research in the field. Besides presenting the latest research on violent extremism, the event also seeks to enhance dialogue and interaction between researchers and practitioners working in the field.
