Welcome to the Global Coalition against Daesh.

We invite you to find out why we were formed, who our 79 partners are, and why we think it’s as important as ever that countries all over the globe remain united to ensure the enduring defeat of Daesh. We’ve added a few more features to our site – click here to be shown around.

What is the Coalition?

The Global Coalition against Daesh was formed in September 2014 and is unique in its membership, scope and commitment. Together, the Global Coalition is committed to degrading and ultimately defeating Daesh.

The Coalition’s 79 members are committed to tackling Daesh on all fronts, to dismantling its networks and countering its global ambitions. Beyond the military campaign in Iraq and Syria, the Coalition is committed to: tackling Daesh’s financing and economic infrastructure; preventing the flow of foreign terrorist fighters across borders; supporting stabilisation and the restoration of essential public services to areas liberated from Daesh; and countering the group’s propaganda.

“I was driven to document Daesh violations.” Meet Marwah Haj Ahmad, the brave Syrian social media journalist on a mission to expose the reality of life under Daesh.

Media was one of the many things that Daesh exerted extreme controls over. Anything that offered a view of the outside world - particularly a liberal, open world where people access information freely - was banned by the terrorists.
