The INDEED D3.1 report provides an in-depth description of the co-design process and the outcome of the development of the Evidence-Based Evaluation Model (EBEM) for Prevention and Countering violent extremism (PVE/CVE) and De-radicalisation (DeRad) initiatives (also applicable to Crime prevention). The model is a result of a collaborative approach among project partners, members of the INDEED Advisory Board, various practitioners from national SMART Hubs, Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN) members and international academic experts in evaluation. The model was designed to provide a basic idea on evaluation, and it serves as a resource for evaluation planners, with or without previous skills in evaluation. The model is grounded upon information from previously developed evaluation frameworks and tools, yet with more up-to-date nuances, also related to the specifications of the field of PVE/CVE and DeRad. The theoretical base for the model is the idea of the evidence-based practice initially adopted from the field of experimental medicine. The model includes the details on the components, stages and steps necessary to be taken when planning an internal or external evaluation. The model, in its turn, serves as a groundwork for the evaluation tool to be developed in T3.2. Thus, D3.1 is viewed as a significant milestone in the INDEED project. The model, the tool along with 2 professional e-guidebooks will form the final evidence-based evaluation package.
