The Guidance is intended to provide a comprehensive practical framework on the EU’s external actions in the area of counter-terrorism (CT) and preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE). It offers practical support and operational guidance to EU staff on the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of EU financed CT and P/CVE specific interventions in third countries. The guidance aims to provide the necessary expertise to:
- accurately assess vulnerabilities, factors Contributing to, and manifestations of, terrorism and violent extremism in a specific country/region;
- assist in the design of appropriate, context specific and conflict sensitive project interventions for CT and P/CVE in third countries, drawing from international best practices and lessons learned;
- provide guidance on the monitoring of such programmes, including identifying potential positive and negative externalities for human security, governance, the rule of law, human rights and gender in the partner country;
- propose metrics and indicators for measuring the impact of CT and CVE programming across multiple result areas, including security, governance and development.
