Countering Violent Extremism The Need for a More Global and Inclusive Approach

Broadcast on August 10, 2016
With Souleyma Haddaoui

Terrorism is a global and non discriminating threat. As such, my approach deconstructs the "us vs them" dichotomy and calls for a global response whereby all societies and people of all faiths work hand in hand to find durable solutions.

  • Global and inclusive approach
  • Violent extremism as a transversal phenomenon
  • Violent extremism is an ideology not a religion
