The Changing Landscape of Violent Extremism

March was a busy month for Transformative Peace, with our Founding Executive Director, Dr. Houda Abadi, giving several lectures on the emerging trajectories of violent extremist movements across the globe (see ‘Past Events’ for more information). With the territorial retreat of Da’esh, and the rise of far-right extremist groups in the West, the landscape of violent extremism looks markedly different than it did a decade or even just several years ago. Despite reduced capacity, Da’esh remains operational, and local violent extremist organizations and individuals claiming affiliation to violent extremist ideologies remain a threat to MENA and global security.

The challenges associated with returnees are significant and require a coordinated and comprehensive international cooperation, which recognizes the complexity of rehabilitating and reintegrating returnees and their families. A long-term vision is needed that ensures a comprehensive approach where mental health, educational reform, job placement opportunities, and partnerships with communities and civil society organizations are all addressed within the reintegration and rehabilitation programming.

Drawing on these guiding pillars, Transformative Peace is committed to designing and implementing inclusive, evidence-based, and contextually relevant PVE programs that respond to the rapidly shifting dynamics of violent extremism around the world.
