ISD CEO Sasha Havlicek and Senior Felllow Farah Pandith co-author an op ed published in Le Monde (France), The Telegraph (UK) and Focus (Germany), to discuss the issue of women becoming involved in extremism activities.

"If we don't act now, it may not be long before we see women committing acts of terror in Western cities"

ISD CEO, Sasha Havlicek, and CEO of Gen Next Working, Michael Davidson co-author an op ed published in The International Business Times, to discuss elements within the private and non-profit sectors that have been exploring the challenges associated with the struggle against ISIS.

ISD has launched a new report on the evidence behind Exit programmes, which deradicalise and disengage individuals from far-right extremist movements, and the viability of Exit work in the UK. The UK’s approach to far-right violence has centred around anti-racism and preventative work, intervention with those on their way into groups, incarceration, and victims support. But the UK is missing a critical step in between: intervention with those already in far-right movements, to stop violence from occurring in the first place.

ISD has launched a new report on the key challenges and lessons learned across 10 EU member states (Sweden, UK, the Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Slovak Republic). This report is based on one year of field research in all 10 countries. It involved interviews with over 100 inspirational individuals, from those writing National Action Plans to frontline professionals carrying out one-to-one interventions. The report offers 10 recommendations for European policy makers.
