The government shutdown has impacted many ICRD programs, not only multiple programs in Yemen, but ICRD’s work in Saudi Arabia to remove intolerance from textbooks – the very books that are being used by ISIS – and work in Pakistan engaging multiple religious sects to create a counter-message to sectarian violence. The inability of ICRD to fully fund its work by drawing down government grants also means that programs are being affected in Spain, Kenya, Indonesia, Lebanon and other places struggling against violence and extremism.
