REACHING OUT TO THE COMMUNITY

Hedayah was created in response to the growing desire from members of the Global Counter-Terrorism Forum and the wider international community for the establishment of an independent, multilateral center.

During the ministerial-level launch of the GCTF in New York in September 2011, the U.A.E offered to serve as the host of the International Center of Excellence for Countering Violent Extremism. In December 2012, Hedayah was inaugurated with its headquarters in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. 

Hedayah is devoted to dialogue and communications, capacity building programs, research and analysis to counter violent extremism in all of its forms and manifestations.
