Rebecca Skellett

Rebecca SkellettRebecca Skellett is Head of Strong Cities Network (SCN) at the leading counter extremism think and “do” tank, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue headquartered in London. The organisation is dedicated to understanding and innovating real-world responses to the rising tide of polarisation, hate and extremism of all forms. They combine anthropological research, expertise in international extremist movements and an advanced digital analysis capability that tracks hate, disinformation and extremism online, with policy advisory support and training to governments and cities around the world. They work to empower youth and community influencers internationally through our pioneering education, technology and communications programmes.

Rebecca spearheads the network, advocating for cities to take a leading role in the identification, design and mitigation of hate, extremism and political violence. Drawing on the collective experiences of over 140 cities from across 45 countries, the network acts as a bridge, connecting cities across international, economic, cultural and ethnic boundaries to policies and practices that have worked well elsewhere. In five years, the network has supported over 5,000 professionals and community leaders, including 750 city officials and over 100 mayors to design, deploy and deliver their own response to these complex challenges in close partnership with both the SCN and the communities they represent. Rebecca oversees a growing team based across Bangladesh, Kenya, Lebanon, Jordan and North Macedonia.

Building on her previous experience as a frontline practitioner in the U.K. Prevent Strategy, Rebecca also leads the Institute’s de-radicalisation and returning terrorist foreign fighter’s programmes. She regularly keynotes conferences, advises national and multi-lateral institutions and in international media such as the BBC World Service and CNN.
