AIFD seeks to engage in the war of ideas against the ideology of political Islam or Islamism by bringing awareness and education to the general public through writings, media interviews, and public forums.
AIFD’s public engagement projects continue to include numerous media appearances, publications and public forums. Domestic national security threats from radical Islamist groups and the growing global instability, most notably in Syria, and across Muslim majority nations has solidified AIFD’s public role as a subject matter expert. AIFD is sought after by public policy experts, governments, and universities, as well as domestic and foreign community networks for its counterterrorisim efforts against radical Islamist’s. We seek through our public platforms to shift the whole of society’s approach in counterterrorism from the current Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) to Countering Violent Islamism (CVI).
