On July 26 – 29, 2011, Google Ideas partnered with the Council on Foreign Relations and the Tribeca Film Festival to bring together more than one hundred attendees from a diverse range of backgrounds to address a common goal of understanding how technology can be part of solutions that counter violent extremism. A group of more than 80 survivors and ‘formers’ – former violent extremists ranging from inner-city gang members and right-wing militants, to violent nationalists and religious extremists – came together alongside more than 100 other attendees, including non-profit organizations, academia, technology companies, government, media and the private sector, for three days of debates and workshops.
