Countering Violent Extremism

The Department of State (State) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) are elevating and expanding our ongoing efforts to Counter Violent Extremism (CVE). In order to better support the CVE partnerships built over the past decade and to carry forth the White House CVE Summit work, the Department has released the Department of State and USAID Joint Strategy on Countering Violent Extremism. The Strategy will guide U.S. efforts to leverage the full range of diplomatic and development resources to prevent and counter the spread of violent extremism.
