From young, lone men carrying out terrorist attacks, to the families of foreign terrorist fighters who traveled to, and remain in Iraq and Syria, analyzing gender dynamics is key to understanding violent extremist groups today.

Examining contemporary cases and international responses, this live briefing will bring together leading academic and policy experts to analyze gendered dynamics of violent extremism, and discuss what a gender lens means for how we respond to violent extremism today.

On Thursday, the 4th of June 2020, from 16:00 to 17:30 (CET/GMT+1), the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague will host an online live briefing, followed by a Q&A session, on gender and violent extremism. The briefing will be moderated by Joachim Koops, ICCT Board Member and Chair of Security Studies and Scientific Director of the Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) at Leiden University’s campus in The Hague.

The ICCT is one of the UNESCO-PREV Chair’s partner organizations.
