The ISD Approach
Our approach is to counter extremism and the ideologies that underpin it in ways that are practical, affordable, effective, and scalable. We support this through cutting-edge research, analysis, data management, and capacity building.
As an independent organisation, we are able to coordinate government, private, academic, and civil society sectors that are often at odds with each other. Instead, we help synergize their efforts and ensure each of them plays an appropriate and effective role in fighting extremism.
We have honed this approach with a decade of experience working from both inside and outside of government, grassroots communities, technology and media, to build a soft power strategy that is proportional in impact, professionalism and scale to the increasingly sophisticated propaganda and recruitment efforts of extremists.
