RAN Practitioners Update 103 | November 2022

RAN Practitioners Update 103 Banner

With the summer now firmly behind us, RAN Practitioners is gearing up for a flurry of meetings and events due to take place between now and the end of the year, including the RAN Plenary on 13th and 14th October. A range of topics will be explored, for instance the online dimension of P/CVE, digital literacy and hybrid ideologies. This Update will therefore take a look at one topic which is increasingly of concern to practitioners: violent left wing, anarchist and anti-establishment extremism. The issue includes the latest edition of the Spotlight publication, the latest episode of the RAN in Focus podcast series, and some of the  recent papers produced by RAN Practitioners and its pool of experts.

Anti-establishment extremism


A paper published by RAN Practitioners in November 2021, provides a concise overview of, and updated figures on violent left wing and anarchist extremism (VLWAE). The purpose of the paper is to help practitioners to better understand the complexity of the phenomenon and to identify existing practices and programmes which can be implemented to address issues relating to this kind of extremism.

You can read the paper in full here.

Latest Publications

Personality disorders and mental illnesses with implications in preventing violent extremism

A recent paper by RAN Practitioners provides insights on the challenges practitioners face when dealing with radicalised individuals with personality disorders, which are: a lack of understanding on the interplay between these specific disorders and radicalisation; how this could lead to violence; and what this means for prevention efforts and treatment options. The paper summarises the main conclusions from a RAN Health Working Group meeting which explored a range of personality disorders, with a particular focus on ASPD.
