We employ evidence-based approaches to counter violent extremism, working with governments and civil society to address local drivers of ideologically motivated violence. We design our approaches to establish peaceful avenues for dissent as well as empower youth and marginalized groups across the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Our programs equip at-risk groups with tools, skills, and confidence to engage with their communities and resist the influence of violent extremist organizations. We support reconciliation efforts in communities where violent extremist organizations historically capitalize on conflict, and we strategize with local and national governments to prevent violent extremism, bringing together key stakeholders to develop locally resonant messaging.
