The Global Center on Cooperative Security is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to a more just and secure world. The organization was born out of a recognition that effectively addressing violent extremism requires innovative approaches that are equitable, evidence-based, and driven by those most affected by violence and injustice.
We are a dynamic, diverse, and international team of experts, trainers, and policy professionals around the world. We operate across Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and South, Central, and Southeast Asia.
Since 2004, we have delivered over 250 projects in more than 50 countries, working with thousands of government, private sector, and civil society partners. We serve as a trusted partner bridging policy and practice to connect impacted communities with decisionmakers in national governments and at the United Nations.
The Global Center:
● Works to achieve lasting security by addressing the root causes, grievances, and fragile social and economic systems that give rise to violent extremism.
● Designs and implements programming to uphold and protect human rights within global security policy and practice.
● Strives to ensure the participation and representation of impacted communities in justice and security policymaking at all levels.
