With a series of books and award-winning films behind him, Noor Huda Ismail is a respected academic in the study of terrorism in Indonesia. He also founded the Yayasan Prasasti Perdamaian, a foundation dedicated to the deradicalization of former terrorists through livelihood support, coaching and training.
