Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We believe that traditional security-focused responses alone do not address many of the grievances that drive violent extremism, such as corruption, inequality, injustice, and poor governance; often, these types of hardline responses only make matters worse. That is why we equip those on the front lines with the knowledge, skills, and networks they need to tackle these challenges in their communities. Our programs safeguard civil liberties and provide a platform to the people directly impacted by violent extremism.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Countering Violent Extremism

A diverse, empowered, and engaged civil society is critical to lasting security. We provide direct financial support to our local partners and help shape their grassroots programming to prevent violent extremism and empower underserved communities in places like Kenya, Nigeria, Cameroon, Indonesia, and Malaysia. The partnerships with these local organizations enable us to prevent young people from turning to violence and provide them with alternative pathways to address their grievances, often caused by repressive and unjust governmental policies.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people
Economically disadvantaged people

Where criminal justice systems are weak or inaccessible, violent extremism can thrive. We train thousands of police officers, prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, and corrections officials to handle terrorism cases in full respect of human rights and the rule of law, in order to drive lasting institutional change in the criminal justice sector.

Population(s) Served
Incarcerated people
Victims and oppressed people

Illicit financial flows are enabled by systemic corruption and perpetuate inequality. We work with financial institutions and businesses to combat terrorism and illicit financing and help them build transparent, accountable, and accessible financial systems.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Global Center seeks to achieve lasting security by advancing inclusive human rights-based policies, partnerships, and practices that address the root causes of violent extremism.

Our work is globally informed but locally grounded, serving as a bridge between policy and practice. We provide millions of dollars of direct support to organizations working to address violent extremism in their communities and train thousands of police and prison officers. We collaborate with the private sector to combat terrorism financing and partner with governments and international institutions on policies and action plans.

The Global Center is on the front line of efforts to end violent extremism around the world. We provide independent analysis and work with government, civil society, and private sector partners to deliver programming that is globally informed and locally grounded. Since 2004, the Global Center has managed over $40 million to deliver over 250 projects, engaging more than 50 countries and working with hundreds of government, private sector and civil society partners, including the UN and the US State Department, to address the fundamental and underlying causes of violent extremism.

We have a strong track record of success—our programs work, we offer exceptional value for money, and we make sure that resources, knowledge, and connections flow to the people best placed to tackle this critical challenge.

Since 2004, the Global Center has managed more than $40 million to deliver over 250 projects around the world. As an impact-driven organization, 95 percent of our funding comes from government grants that produce measurable outcomes. Almost all our funders reinvest in our work because we get results.

The Global Center depends on unrestricted donations and grants to serve as a bridge between international policy and local practice in order to build a more just and secure world. Nongovernmental donors are a critical part of our work, as we rely on their support to remain agile, independent, and innovative.
