In his research, Davis examined how other western democracies have addressed this issue and what U.S. policy maker could learn from them. Using 'social capital' to empower community groups, not just law enforcement and governments, has been shown a key ingredient of a successful of a CVE [Counter Violent Extremism] plan.
