Violent Extremism A handbook of risk assessment and management Edited by Caroline Logan, Randy Borum, and Paul Gill

Violent extremism has galvanized public fear and attention. Driven by their concerns, the public has pushed for law enforcement and mental health systems to prevent attacks rather than just respond to them after they occur. The prevention process requires guidance for practitioners and policymakers on how best to identify people who may be at risk, to understand and assess the nature and function of the harm they may cause, and to manage them to mitigate or prevent harm. Violent Extremism provides such guidance.

Please note presenters will attend our conference for free but have to cover their own transport and accommodation costs.

Kind regards, AETAP Board

Conference postponed to 25th to 28th April 2022, but we`re planing an event in 2021 for you

Dear AETAP members, colleagues and friends,
we are pleased to let you know, that we are actively working on an alternative solution to our 4-day conference we had arranged to have in Budapest in 2021. Due to the current Covid-19 situation, our seminars and presentations won’t be held at the Sofihotel in Budapest next year. Please feel reassured, that we are planning an event, which will minimize the health risks involved and make everyone feel more comfortable attending our annual conference.

Warm regards,

Conference postponed to 19th – 22nd April 2021 – Newsupdate

Update Monday 16th March 2020
Conference postponed to 19th – 22nd April 2021

Given the growing concerns around COVID-19 and a majority of countries announcing a range of restrictions from public gatherings to flight bans to closing borders, we have made the difficult decision to postpone AETAP’s 2020 conference in Budapest this year.

Although we share WHO Director-General’s belief  “The rule of the game is: never give up” we must acknowledge the affect the coronavirus has on us individually, our families and the general public. We feel responsible for both, our speakers and our conference participants and would feel terribly upset, if they experienced any destress due to attending our conference.

On a more positive note, we can already confirm, that the next AETAP conference will take place between 19th and 22nd April 2021. We are delighted to have secured the same venue in Budapest. Many thanks go to the Sofihotel who has been extremely communicative and helped us find the best possible outcome under somewhat confusing circumstances.

Lastly and most importantly, all paid conference tickets for this year will be reimbursed. We sincerely thank you all for your understanding and patience.

We look forward to welcoming you next year in Budapest.


Kind regards,
Andrea Wechlin & Karoline Roshdi
(AETAP President & AETAP Vice President)
