 The overarching aims of this conference are two-fold:

 •     To bring together an interdisciplinary group of experts, along with an interested public, to share their work, build partnerships, and construct “next steps.”

 •     To examine both the strengths and shortcomings of the counter-narrative initiative, as well as the ethical questions that are involved.
