Abstract
In this ICCT Research Paper Dr. Bibi van Ginkel takes an in depth look at how multi‐lateral institutions,
engage with civil society to counter violent extremism. Dr. van Ginkel argues that civil society can play a
crucial role in preventing and countering violent extremism in numerous ways – by working on
development programs, through their work in conflict transformation, in providing a platform to raise
political grievances and to facilitate dialogue, or through their work in empowering victims and survivors
of terrorism. The paper finds that over the last decade there has been a more intensive coordination of
activities between the UN and other multi‐lateral organisations and civil society but the question remains
whether the implementation as well as the drafting of these policies will live up to their potential
effectiveness. This paper gauges how effective these measures have been and what more there is to do.
The final section concludes with a series of policy recommendations.
