Welcome to the VKB



    The Violent Extremism Knowledge Base is a single resource for information and research on violent extremism.  For the initial launch in February 2011 the VKB consists of a wiki on violent extremism, a free basic Data Analysis and Visualization Environment that we call DAVE, and our growing library on terrorism and extremism.

    ISVG is regularly curating pages for release in the VKB.  Typically these pages will profile violent extremist organizations, transnational organized crime groups, and specific incidents. We will be releasing pages every week and announcing these pages on our blog and Twitter.
