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, former Homeland Security Advisor Frances Townsend and 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 & launching “eGlyph” a new algorithm designed to detect and remove terrorist related content online.
CEP also runs effective counter-narrative programs including the Global Youth Summit Against Violent Extremism (in conjunction with the White House & US Department of State), and CEP’s One95 Youth Innovation Grant Program to scale-up promising counter extremism projects worldwide. CEP is also the official implementing partner for the US State Department’s 2017-2019 Countering Violent Extremism Mission to Tanzania.
The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) is a not-for-profit, non-partisan, international policy organization that has received charitable status under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
