This project explores community resilience against violent extremism. It assesses specifically how traditional and religious authorities can improve the resilience of their community. We surveyed nearly 30 municipalities in the Ménaka and Gao regions (Mali), the Tillabéri region (Niger), and the Sahel, Est, and Centre-Nord regions (Burkina Faso). Results are based on 1400 quantitative surveys and 600 qualitative interviews.
