International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism

As the director of visual media, I counter ISIS and al Shabaab propaganda by strategically challenging extremist narratives through video and other mediums.

Our Counter Narrative Stories

Our Approach

We use field-based primary research and evidence-based educational video materials that are carefully crafted to counter the efforts of extremist and terrorist organizations to publicize their propaganda and garner support for violence. ICSVE strongly believes that the voices of defectors and victims of terrorist groups should be the overriding force in our collective counter-narrative efforts. First-person research with extremists, terrorists, and their supporters, and evidence-based counter-messaging is what makes our organization stand out from the rest.
