CEP Interactive Map Spotlights Extremism & Counter-Extremism Efforts Country by Country

The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) today released its new Areas of Operation map that describes extremism and counter-extremism efforts in 24 countries, and depicts the geographic scope and impact of extremist and terrorist groups.  

The mapping tool includes country-specific reports describing the phenomena of radicalization and foreign fighters, extremism and terrorist movements, and domestic and international counter-extremism initiatives. The map also features 28 comprehensive reports on major extremist and terrorist groups operating around the globe—from Al-Qaeda to ISIS, Al-Shabab, Boko Haram, and the Taliban.

‘The Areas of Operation map, along with the Global Extremist Registry, demonstrates CEP’s commitment to building a best-in-class resource for information on extremist groups, where they operate, their leaders, and their social and financial networks,” said CEP CEO Ambassador Mark D. Wallace. “Our new tool aims to contribute to a better understanding of the global, complex, and urgent challenge of extremism. Dynamic online research resources like these illustrate why we believe combatting extremism is one of the world’s most pressing global imperatives.”
