Terrorism continues to pose a serious security challenge to Australia. The Australian Government is working with communities to strengthen resilience to radicalization and assist individuals to disengage from violent extremist influences and beliefs. This partnership is essential to reduce the risk of home-grown terrorism.

Building resilience to violent extremism in our communities will be a long-term challenge requiring the combined efforts of governments, community groups and individuals. The Australian Government’s countering violent extremism strategy supports Australia’s broader counter-terrorism efforts by addressing factors that make people vulnerable to extremist influences and recruitment by terrorists. The emphasis of “Living Safe Together Program” is on prevention and early intervention.

The Australian Government recognizes that building resilience to violent extremism in our communities is a long-term challenge requiring the combined efforts of governments, community groups and individuals.

Many government agencies are pursuing programs that directly or indirectly help to address violent extremism, by building resilience to resist the negative influence of intolerant and extremist ideologies, and addressing factors that make individuals vulnerable to extremist influences.

The Australian Government is working with communities to build resilience to extremist influences, challenge extremist messages and support constructive participation in Australia’s democratic processes and in the wider community.
