- The Three Pathways (3P) Model of Violent Extremism: A Framework to Guide Policymakers to the Right Questions about their Preventive Countermeasures
Prominent frameworks relating to terrorism and violent extremism, including that developed by the NYPD and the popular ‘pyramid’ and ‘staircase’ analogies, tend to oversimplify or neglect the diversity of routes that individuals travel to violence.
