Why people join violent extremist groups

Connect future approached us to make a film on a topic that's at the forefront of public conscious at the moment.

This ten minute film harnesses the key insights and talking points from the four formers and two community activists into a broader discussion piece.


Incorporating the voices of Yasmin, Shahid, Sammy and Nigel, alongside community advocate Faizal and Yazidi and activist Rozin, we try to provide a deeper understanding of the impact global extremism and terrorism can have on local realities.

It asks challenging questions: how can communities better tackle extremism and how can we build partnerships with all grassroots voices so that they are heard? How can we better weave their voices alongside State and policing decision makers so that communities can be at the heart of practical solutions moving forward? We are optimistic for a future based on genuine and transparent partnership work.
