A series of evidence-based lessons for international NGOs, practitioners and activists working in Pakistan, to improve their capacities in developing counter-narrative campaigns to counter extremism and hate speech.

As part of its efforts to implement more relevant and impactful programming in Pakistan, SCN conducted 8 focus groups in early 2019, bringing together 70 young people from Islamabad. The focus groups explored how youth in the country understand extremism and hate speech: how they define these issues, where they encounter them, and who they see as responsible. The findings were arranged into this report, which centres around the perceptions of youth, their media consumption patterns, their notions of identity and their feelings toward government and news media.
