Our “Countering Violent Extremism: The Counter-Narrative Study,” through our partnership with the Qatar International Academy for Security Studies (QIASS), is the result of a year-long research project conducted by our team of former top law enforcement, intelligence, and counterterrorism officials. We traveled around the world, from Malaysia to Kenya to Norway to Northern Ireland to the United States, studying extremist and terrorist groups and interviewing their members, as well as those in government and other important stakeholders responsible for tackling the problem.
We were proud to launch the study at the first ever Global Town Hall on Countering the Narratives of Extremism, held simultaneously in four cities—New York, Belfast, Singapore, and Dakar—on September 9, 2013. The event brought together world leaders, global counterterrorism officials, and subject matter experts, highlighting the findings of the study and its crucial lessons.
This study not only offers guidance to those committed to countering the narratives of extremism but will, we hope, change the way that stakeholders see and confront this problem on a broader level.
