dc.description.abstract Violent extremism is a key challenge to security in most parts of the world. This has become particularly the case as globalization facilitates violent extremism through global media coverages as well as global economic finance that provide strategic access to violent extremist groups. At the same time, preventing violent extremism in the era of globalization has also become possible as collaborations between governments, international organizations and civil societies increased. Yet, it remains critical to identify strategies that have proven most effective in undermining and preventing violent extremism. In this thesis we examine the lessons learned from global efforts to counter the media and finance campaign of ISIS as to draw a comprehensive integrated strategy for PVE. The significance of the study stems from the fact that global strategizing efforts are needed to pay greater emphasis on the media and finance, specifically in weak and vulnerable states. The lessons extracted from the struggle against ISIS on both media and finance fronts demonstrate ways to strengthen youth resilience to stand against violent extremists’ appeal and recruits on both media and finance fronts. en_US
