This paper focuses on the applicability of a crisis management model to issues such as violence, radicalization, extremism and terrorism. It argues that, although criticized, the model constitutes a valid method to approach those issues. It is important to recognize the fundamental role of risk communication and the importance of that dimension in broadening our approaches and providing a basis for a comprehensive crisis management and prevention strategy. To do so, it is essential that we develop a common understanding of the characteristics of risk communication, as a phenomenon, as well as the role of risk perception, and that we become aware of the promising potentials of risk communication as a basis for crisis management and the prevention of violent radicalization.
