Countering Violent Extremism Advocate, Kofi Annan Foundation

Fatima has worked across the national security portfolio, advising senior members of the United Kingdom Government. She has coupled this work with the Kofi Annan Foundation, where she serves as a Countering Violent Extremism Advocate. With the backing of the former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Fatima helped launch the Extremely Together initiative, which aims to empower a global network of activists to fight violent extremism with positive stories of peace. Since its launch in 2016, Extremely Together has reached 2.5 million young people online, recruited 10,000 members and delivered numerous training sessions throughout Europe, the Middle East, Americas and Africa.
