New Video Shows How Victims of Terrorism Contribute to CVE in Indonesia


In this video, ICCT Associate Fellow Max Boon shows the great work that he and his colleagues are doing in Indonesia, empowering victims of terrorism to play a role in countering violent extremism.

Max, who became a victim of the 2009 Marriott Jakarta terrorist bomb attack where he lost both his legs, founded the AIDA Foundation in 2013 together with a number of Indonesian community leaders. This Foundation empowers victims of terrorism to get involved in different levels and forms of outreach against violent extremism in Indonesia, for instance through programmes during which victims and former violent extremists engage with high school students to increase their understanding of the impact of political violence.
