On behalf of WASL, ICAN is spearheading a series of GSX thematic working group meetings on topics that WASL members have identified as critical to the dynamics of extremism and militarism. We are highlighting new dimensions and bringing a gendered lens to the discussions, analysis, and advocacy on the topics which to date include: Security Interventions, Neoliberal Economics, and Education.
