Chiefs of Defense Conference focuses on countering violent extremism

Representatives from 83 nations participated in the third annual Counter Violent Extremist Organizations Chiefs of Defense Conference hosted by chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Marine Corps General Joe Dunford. The event, held in October, included U.S. combatant commanders and commanders of counterterrorism operations from around the world.

At the conference, Dunford spoke of the need to focus on the underlying conditions that lead to radicalization, saying that a whole-of-government approach is required. Economic development, education, healthcare, and infrastructure are essential to maintaining societies and countering extremism.
