Research and Analysis


MASAR, which means “path” or “trajectory” in Arabic, helps steer designers of preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE) projects on the right “path” to achieving measurable outcomes and projecting the impact in terms of reducing radicalization and recruitment to violent extremism.

MASAR assists practitioners and policymakers in creating a plan for monitoring, measurement, and evaluation (MM&E) of P/CVE programs and projects. MASAR walks a user through a comprehensive process for helping design P/CVE programs, collecting information about the user’s activities and recommending resources to support the development of goals and objectives, indicators, data collection methods and evaluation.

The content of MASAR is a product of Hedayah and the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) and the app was developed by 21 Unicorns. MASAR was supported by a contribution from the Government of Canada.

MASAR is based on Hedayah's MM&E framework, Evaluate Your CVE Results: Projecting Your Impact
