Noor Huda Ismail


A peacebuilder, writer, and filmmaker who specialises in deradicalisation and counter-terrorism. Through research, arts, and civil society initiatives, he is developing the means to rehabilitate former terrorists and reincorporate them back into mainstream Indonesian society.

Noor was inspired to get involved with peacebuilding after the 2002 Bali bombings, when he learned that his former classmate had been involved in the attack. Inspired by the work of a Northern Ireland-based NGO that he encountered during his time as a Chevening Scholar, he founded the Institute of International Peace Building, which aims to tackle terrorism and promote peace through dialogue and social enterprise.

His varied career has spread across journalism, filmmaking, and public speaking. He has delivered a series of international lectures and a TEDx talk, produced three documentary films, and written two books, all on a series of interlinked topics related to terrorism, violence, and gender.1
