Latifa Ibn Ziaten

Founder of IMAD Association and activist against extremism

A Moroccan-French activist, Latifa Ibn Ziaten is a mother dedicated to raising awareness against escalating extremism and violence. From the devastating circumstances of losing her son, Imad – who was murdered in a terrorist attack in 2012 - Mrs. Ibn Ziaten found the strength to overcome this tragedy by taking positive action to combat the radicalization of youth in France and beyond. Today, as a well-known civil society activist in France and across Europe, she works closely with families and communities to prevent youth radicalization and spread the message of human fraternity through peaceful means such as dialogue and mutual respect.
