The threat from violent extremism remains as real today as it was fifteen years ago when the Global Center launched. In many ways, the threat we face now is more complex and we need smart, locally grounded responses to have a meaningful impact.
Since 2004, the Global Center has been doing just that; we have delivered over 250 projects, engaging more than 50 countries and working with hundreds of government, private sector, and civil society partners to address the root causes of violent extremism.Read More
Using the guidelines of the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism’s “Reference Guide: Developing National and Regional Action Plans to Prevent Violent Extremism” as a common analytical framework, this report is organized around the six procedural components outlined therein as essential in developing inclusive, context-specific, and robust national strategies. Analyzing national strategies against this framework, the report explores whether the procedures and considerations that led to the development of countries’ national strategies meet this standard.
The Global Center received the Innovators Award in Global Affairs in the Security & Defense category, for addressing the root causes of violent extremism with innovative, inclusive, and human rights-based policies, partnerships, and practices. The Awards, sponsored by Network 20/20 and Young Professionals in Foreign Policy, recognize those individuals and organizations at the forefront of delivering pioneering solutions to global policy challenges in the fields of sustainability, civic engagement, security, humanitarian aid, and financial inclusion. We hope you will join us in this important effort.
