Preventing violent extremism through the United Nations: the rise and fall of a good idea

This article examines the obstacles facing the UN's Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) Plan of Action.

The author, David Ucko, assesses the future prospects of the PVE agenda, and UN-based counterterrorism efforts more broadly, arguing that expectations may have to be adjusted for such multilateral efforts to succeed.
