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

About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
