Narratives are an important part of the recruitment and enactment of violence, whether they are long-held social and cultural antagonisms or more recent interpretations. Despite past effort, governments and NGOs alike have been largely unsuccessful in countering these narratives. But, more troubling, practitioners of these relatively new religious narratives have failed to understand these narratives as complex cultural-linguistic entities.


Global Covenant supports partners who develop linguistic tools that predict violence before it breaks out.

Additionally, a team of data scientists and religion scholars in affiliation with Global Covenant are pioneering new methods to establish a community's threat level based on linguistic markers.


How do we reduce the use of religious narratives to incite violence?
