AS Malcolm Turnbull made his first national security statement as Prime Minister, Panorama investigated Australia’s strategies for countering violent extremism (CVE).

For four years, from 2010, preventative programs were at the heart of the then federal governments’ efforts.

More than $5-million went into Building Community Resilience Grants Programs, including the Community Awareness Training Manual.

Panorama reporter Emma D’Agostino interviewed Australian Multicultural Foundation executive director Dr Hass Dellal about the manual and recent criticism about the value of preventative programs in tackling radicalisation.
