The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) is a not-for-profit, non-partisan, international policy organization formed to combat the growing threat from extremist ideology. Founded by Ambassador Mark Wallace, Senator Joseph Lieberman, and Frances Townsend, and led by a renowned group of former world leaders and diplomats, CEP combats extremism through technological, education, and advocacy programs designed to disrupt extremists' financial, recruitment, and ideological support networks. CEP has pioneered efforts to combat extremists’ radicalization and recruitment work online, recently co-developing and launching "eGlyph," a new algorithm designed to detect and remove terrorist related content online.
Elliott Abrams serves on CEP’s Advisory Board. He previously served as deputy assistant to the president and deputy national security advisor in the administration of President George W. Bush, where he supervised U.S. policy in the Middle East. After serving on the staffs of Sens. Henry M. Jackson and Daniel P. Moynihan, he was assistant secretary of state in the Reagan administration. He was previously president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and a member of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. He is also a member of the Board of the National Endowment for Democracy and a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations.
