Vision: A more just and secure world.


: To achieve lasting security by advancing inclusive, human rights–based policies, partnerships, and practices that address the root causes of violent extremism.

Method: We provide independent analysis and work with government, civil society, and private sector partners to deliver programming that is globally informed and locally grounded.


The Global Center is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to a more just and secure world.

Since 2004, 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.

The threat of violent extremism is not new, but it has grown in scale and diversity. Traditional security-focused responses do not address some of the grievances that drive violent extremist recruitment, such as corruption, inequality, injustice, and poor governance.

We equip those on the front lines with the knowledge, skills, and networks they need to tackle this challenge.

Our work is globally informed but locally grounded, serving as a bridge between policy and practice.

We provide millions of dollars of direct support to organizations working to address violent extremism in their communities and train thousands of police and prison officers. We collaborate with the private sector to combat terrorism financing and partner with governments and international institutions on policies and action plans.

With a dynamic staff, a global network of experts, and one of the most efficient operating structures in our sector, we are a trusted and effective partner; 94 percent of our donors have reinvested in our work.

The Global Center has staff in New York, Washington DC, London, Nairobi, Tunisia, and Paris, and works with a global network of experts.
