Against violent extremism: online and offline
Terrorism is a crime that has no justification, and it should not be associated with any race, ethnicity, nationality or religion. No state can counter violent extremism and radicalization that lead to terrorism alone: we must co-operate at all levels.
To underscore that we at the OSCE stand together as one in countering violent extremism that leads to terrorism, the OSCE Secretary General and the OSCE Serbian Chairmanship have launched the “OSCE United in Countering Violent Extremism (#UnitedCVE)” campaign.
We must all rise to the challenge of responding to the corrosive appeal of violent extremism by promoting tolerance, mutual respect, pluralism, inclusion, and cohesion.
The OSCE’s 57 participating States and 11 Partners for Co-operation are determined to prevent and combat terrorism, in all its forms and manifestations, while upholding human rights and the rule of law. But we need everyone on board to make it happen. Let’s speak up together loud and clear for peace and security!
