Programme Description

This executive training is offered in joint collaboration with the UN Team of Experts Rule of Law/Sexual Violence in Conflict and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The course will explore the role of gender in terrorism and counter-terrorism; the role of women and men in terrorist groups and  the impact terrorism has on victims with a highly significant gender dimension. Measures to prevent violent extremism and counter terrorism policies, however, tend to be traditionally based on the (unspoken) assumption that terrorist groups are made up (nearly exclusively) of men, and that those affected by terrorism and fighting terrorism in the security and justice institutions are primarily men. Women seem to play only subordinate and collateral roles in these conflicts. 

In the aftermath of terrorism, there are significant gender implications to state responses surrounding criminal justice, rehabilitation and reintegration of people associated with terrorist groups and support to victims. 

Ranging from the gender specific roles within terrorist groups to the gender implications of state response to the threat of terrorism, this executive training will explore the gender dimensions of terrorism and counter-terrorism.
