OUR MISSION

Founded in 2015, the Program on Extremism at George Washington University has quickly become a leading research center on all forms of extremism. The Program spearheads innovative and thoughtful academic inquiry, producing empirical work and developing pragmatic policy solutions that resonate with policymakers, civic leaders, and the general public. Its partnerships with some of the world’s most prominent universities, think tanks, media outlets and governmental agencies are a testament of the Program’s research quality, independence and innovative approach.
