In order to curb the spread of terrorism and radical Islamist ideologies, CESD creates reports and articles which intend to explain the relationship between such groups and countries under dictatorships. We are among the first to speak out against Ghuraba al-Sham, the now defunct group which set out to destroy democracy across Iraq. We monitor radical Islamist militant groups all across the board, from Fateh al-Sham and Hezbollah in Lebanon, to Jundallah in Iran. Now however, our focus is aimed at restricting the spread of violent ideologies. We support human rights across all levels, and radical ideologies hinder any future goals of democracy and individual freedoms for civilians
