The publication “De-radicalisation or the Roll-Back of Extremist Violence: Proceedings of the panel meeting” is an outcome of a panel discussion held at UNOG on 23 June 2016 by the Geneva Centre with the support of the Permanent Mission of Algeria to the United Nations Office in Geneva and other International Organizations in Switzerland.

The discussion was themed “De-radicalization and the Roll Back of Violent Extremism” in recognition of, and as a follow-up to, the valued initiative taken by the United Nations Secretary General and by the Government of Switzerland who convened a Summit meeting on this important issue on 8 April 2016 to identify a plan of action to prevent violent extremism.

This publication takes stock of the ideas of the panellists in relation to improving the understanding of the evolving phenomenon of violent extremism and reviews best practice as well as alternative policy options to roll it back.

The meeting offered a successful alternative platform to reach out to people of all creeds and beliefs as well as to people with none, with the ultimate objective of eradicating racism based on the Islamic religion.
