Abstract:

"As the Trump administration reportedly plans to revamp a controversial set of programs begun by the Obama administration called 'Countering Violent Extremism,' (CVE) our new report finds that CVE programs are already targeted almost exclusively at American Muslims. Moreover, these programs rely on debunked methodology that aims to identify potential terrorists based on supposedly radical views, while damaging American Muslim communities by ensnaring completely innocent individuals and increasing distrust between those communities and law enforcement. The report recommends a wholesale reconsideration of these programs in each form they take."--
