Examining International Efforts to Address Violent Extremism
This paper draws lessons learned from case studies of deradicalization initiatives in eight Muslim-majority countries, which corroborate the experiences of countries in other regions that have grappled with violent extremist groups. The paper concludes by making recommendations concerning how the UN could help to facilitate the provision of knowledge and resources to key stakeholders interested in establishing or strengthening their own rehabilitation programs.
