On 19 — 21 September 2023, the Strong Cities Network held its Fourth Global Summit in New York City, bringing together more than 240 participants, including mayors and governors, city officials and practitioners from more than 115 cities and 50 countries around the world. The Summit featured 11 events, providing participants with opportunities to share and learn from city-led innovations and approaches to prevent and respond to rising hate, extremism and polarisation.

The Summit opened with an event co-hosted with Columbia University’s School for International and Public Policy (SIPA) aimed at identifying multidisciplinary innovations and approaches that cities can adapt and tailor to support their efforts to address hate, extremism and polarisation. As SIPA Dean Keren Yarhi-Milo said in her opening remarks, responding to these challenges “is one of the most pressing issues of our time … it is of existential importance”; this event was thus a timely platform for mayors and other city leaders and practitioners to share approaches and experiences.
