The Centre on Religion & Geopolitics presents informed analysis on the interaction of religion and conflict globally, it provide practical support to counter religious conflict and wxtremism around the world in order to promote open-minded societies.

British Labour Party politician, who served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (UK), from 1997 to 2007 Tony Blair shared on Facebook:

'Extremism is a global problem today. It’s not just ISIS in Syria, you’ve got ISIS in Libya, Boko Haram in Nigeria, Al-Shabaab in Somalia. There are groups in the Philippines and Thailand.

The latest Global Extremism Monitor from my Centre on Religion & Geopolitics shows the extent of the problem. In April 28 extremist groups instigated 207 violent incidents in 23 countries. The five worst incidents alone killed at least 308 people.

It means that this year alone there have already been over 12,000 deaths as a result of this violence, with 53 countries having either suffered violent extremist attacks or expended efforts to defeat the scourge.

We’ve got to understand the roots of this issue and debate the right policies to deal with them.'

According to Tony Blair Faith Foundation, Our Global Extremism Monitor data for April shows that the fight against violent religious extremism is global, with 28 extremist groups instigating 207 violent incidents in 23 countries. The five worst incidents alone killed at least 308 people.
