Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to contribute to a gap in the literature on reintegration of returnees from travels to violent extremism through exploring why some countries institutionalize support to families of those who have travelled to violent extremism, while others do not. This is an underexplored and timely topic due to the current phenomenon of returnees to Europe from travels to violent extremism. I hypothesize that inclusion of civil society actors in national level strategies against violent extremism effects institutionalization of such support. To test my argument, I conduct a structured, focused case comparison of inclusion of civil society actors in the national-level work to counter violent extremism in Denmark and Sweden. While I do not find support for my hypothesis, a closer exploration of my causal mechanism leads to several alternative explanations for variations in institutionalization of support to families and highlights avenues for future research.
