Synopsis: This paper examines the so-called deradicalisation projects in the Muslim world, especially from the most Muslim majority country, Indonesia, which has been suffering from terrorism for some time. From the Indonesian case, this paper also shows how civil society can fight and counter terrorism by introducing and applying deradicalisation programmes in Muslim societies in Indonesia. As a result, this paper also offers some insights for such projects in New Zealand and Pacific Islands countries.
