A Pan-European discussion round on gender-relevant aspects of exit work
Organised and led by Violence Prevention Network gGmbH
Although women play diverse and complex roles in extremist groups, they did not gain much attention from security actors and researchers as of recent years. Given the fact that dozens of deradicalisation and exit programmes have been implemented over the past decade with only a small fraction of them considering gender-relevant aspects in a meaningful way, the goal of the event is to start a dialogue between researchers and practitioners in this field. We want to discuss the need for gender-sensitive programming and bring together different perspectives on what it takes to get there.
