CEP Report Launch: Gradualists to Jihadists – Islamist Narratives in the West

(New York, N.Y./London) – The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) invites you to the launch of our new report, Gradualists to Jihadists: Islamist Narratives in the West.

The author of the report, CEP Advisor Liam Duffy, examines why Islamism should be treated as political ideology and calls for greater attention to be paid to the political narratives of Islamist groups in preventing violent extremism.

Practitioners and policymakers working in counterterrorism can use the tools provided in this report to recognize, and counter the narratives that are common to Islamist groups across the spectrum, from non-violent ‘gradualists’ to violent jihadists.
