The GCERF Governing Board has approved two new partner countries, Albania and North Macedonia. This cements our regional strategy in the Western Balkans where GCERF is set to launch an initiative on returning foreign terrorist fighters.
The board has also improved a Country Strategy for Investment in Somalia, where GCERF will focus on addressing the socioeconomic drivers of violent extremism in Jubaland.
