In September 2021, the Counter Extremism Project (CEP), in partnership with Parallel Networks, was awarded a FY2021 Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention (TVTP) grant to set up the Radicalization, Rehabilitation, Reintegration, and Recidivism Network (4R Network).
The goal of the 4R Network is to establish a national ecosystem of actors bound by common standards to facilitate a whole-of-society approach to extremist offender reintegration and recidivism reduction that guarantees every actor tasked with supervising extremist offenders in-prison and/or in-community in the U.S. has adequate knowledge and access to evidence-based support for reintegration.
To date, there exists no formal, in-prison recidivism reduction program tailored for convicted terrorists, nor a fully realized post-release initiative to support the reentry and reintegration of terrorism-related offenders in the country. The 4R Network seeks to fill gaps in both knowledge and programming by constructing a national ecosystem of multiagency and multisectoral stakeholders bound by common standards to facilitate a whole-of-society approach to extremist offender reintegration and recidivism reduction in the U.S.

Connect those tasked with the monitoring and supervision of extremist offenders to professional practitioners with expertise in reintegration and deradicalization-oriented programming.
Promote discussions on the reintegration and rehabilitation of extremism-related offenders.
Share knowledge and advance best practices related to reintegration and rehabilitation.
Foster partnerships between government and civil society to best address the needs of extremism-related offenders.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
CEP is leading the 4R Network and invites relevant stakeholders and actors to be a part of this innovative effort. The purpose of the network is to provide those directly or indirectly facilitating rehabilitation, reintegration, and recidivism reduction programming for extremism-related offenders across the United States with the knowledge and evidence-based practices necessary to support their work.
The 4R Network provides its members with:
16 Monthly Online Sessionsdedicated to enhancing awareness specific to the rehabilitation and reintegration needs of extremist offenders, led by national and international experts.
10 Additional Sessionsfor practitioners and interventionists (in conjunction with Beyond Conflict and Inside Circle).
Sessions include first-hand insights from CEP’s in-prison/post-release deradicalization and support initiative, Alternative Pathways.
