The Global Center works to achieve lasting security by advancing inclusive, human rights–based policies, partnerships, and practices to address the root causes of violent extremism. We focus on four mutually reinforcing objectives:
• Supporting communities in addressing the drivers of conflict and violent extremism.
• Advancing human rights and the rule of law to prevent and respond to violent extremism.
• Combating illicit finance that enables criminal and violent extremist organizations.
• Promoting multilateral cooperation and rights-based standards in counterterrorism.
Our global team and network of experts, trainers, fellows, and policy professionals work to conduct research and deliver programming in these areas across sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, and South, Central, and Southeast Asia.
