Countering Extremism in Predominantly Muslim Countries
Religious Freedom Series
The rise of radical jihadi groups like ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Boko Haram are challenging perceptions of Islam both within the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and internationally. This briefing will examine the views and opinions of Muslim populations living amidst radical groups, and identify ways international actors and policymakers can support those voices seeking to counter radicalism and support human rights, rule of law and religious freedom.
