There is growing recognition from policymakers, practitioners, and other experts that a limited security-oriented approach is insufficient for addressing the conditions that lead to rising violent extremism, and thus a more holistic, “whole of society” effort is needed to prevent and counter this threat.

Managing, reducing, and preventing the threat of violence while providing positive alternatives that foster pluralism, dignity, and human security, requires partnerships among a wide array of government and non-government stakeholders.

The Global Solutions Exchange (GSX)* serves as a durable mechanism for systematic and structured interactions among governments, multilateral organizations, and independent civil society actors with a track record in programming, analysis, gender perspectives or policy advocacy to build resilience against violent extremism.

We are pleased to announce the expansion of the GSX and the formation of a steering group, which will be co-led by the Women’s Alliance for Security Leadership and the Prevention Project. Read the fact sheet to learn more.

Steering Group:

Geneva Center for Security Policy

Global Center on Cooperative Security

International Civil Society Action Network

The Prevention Project: Organizing Against Violent Extremism

Royal United Services Institute

Women’s Alliance for Security Leadership

*ICAN and WASL first launched the GSX, with an early focus on women-led organizations, in partnership with the Royal Norwegian Government on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in September 2016.
