Strategic Partners in the War of Ideas Against Radical Islam

Grant Year: 2018


Ilan Berman will lead an effort to explore how the United States can partner with leaders from tolerant traditions of Islam to provide a counterweight to the violent radical Islamism of al Qaida and its affiliated movements. He will undertake a net assessment of the current political competition against radical Islam, prepare a series of case studies assessing various models of relatively moderate Islamic governance, and identify the lessons learned from those case studies. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
