Enhancing awareness within specific geographic areas
Organizations rely on research from the Institute for the Study of Violent Groups (ISVG) to enhance awareness of violent extremism and transnational crime within specific geographic areas. With ten years of experience in open source research, ISVG has developed extensive research capabilities that include multilingual near-real time research, linking new information to historical information in a relational database, and the ability to integrate social media and streaming video content with traditional media. ISVG's research parameters are customized to meet the information needs of the client, and all data goes through a three-tiered quality assurance process to safeguard the confidence and accuracy of the research. ISVG's unique transnational criminal database structure methodology captures up to 1,500 variables relating to groups, individuals, and events tied to extremism and transnational crime, allowing researchers to code for minutiae that lends to detailed and accurate visualizations and analytic products.
