Bridging Transatlantic Voices: Civic Approaches to Confronting Violent Extremism

ABBAS BARZEGARY,DR. SHAWN POWERS ANDNAGHAM EL KARHILI, SEPTEMBER 2016

Bridging Transatlantic Voices is a civil society dialogue project funded by the European Commission’s Foreign Policy Instrument. The programme focuses on civil society efforts in countering violent extremism (CVE). Over three years (2015-2018), the British Council with partners from Georgia State University and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue will hold six workshops in six cities on this subject.

The project will also produce a total of three reports containing sector-wide, civil society and policy recommendations for the European Union and major CVE organisations and government entities to utilise in their efforts towards this widely popular issue of countering violent extremism. This first report was released in September 2016 and is authored by scholars at Georgia State University.
