We realize the impossibility of the challenge that we have taken on, but believe wholeheartedly in the importance and, indeed, necessity of a more human-centric approach to fighting violent extremism. Our goal is not to find a solution for these complex problems, but to create space for cooperation, dialogue and an approach that places the human element first.

Governments and law enforcement have borne the sole burden of responsibility for far too long – It is time for non-governmental organizations and the private sector to take a more concerted stand in inoculating against extremist ideology and in proliferating pro-social alternatives to violence.
