Stocktake Research Project

The Stocktake Research Project was commissioned by the Victorian Government to provide a rigorous and systematic review of national and international literature and programs conducted between 2011 and 2015 in the areas of social cohesion, community resilience and the prevention of violent extremism. The report was authored by Professor Michele Grossman (Deakin University), Dr Mario Peucker and Dr Debra Smith (Victoria University) and Dr Hass Dellal AO (Australian Multicultural Foundation).
