Recruitment is context specific and evolves over time. The scope and nature of violent extremism varies. “Push” and “pull” factors are not the same everywhere nor at all times; and, neither are the strengths and weaknesses of national education systems when it comes to responding to the challenges posed by terrorist and violent extremism groups. At the same time, every country is at a different stage of capacity development and level of preparedness with respect to protecting children from recruitment and exploitation by terrorist and violent extremist groups. Depending on the institutional, financial and human resources available and the country’s specific vulnerability to terrorism and violent extremism, different types of prevention activities may need to be implemented. Priorities for action will therefore vary. Conducting an objective assessment of the national situation can help avoid the risk of building on wrongful assumptions and ensure the effectiveness of future policies and programmes.
