Global Solutions Exchange (GSX) workshop convened by ICAN and UNDP to address the disengagement, rehabilitation and reintegration of women and girls associated with violent extremism
This week more than 40 peacebuilders, researchers, and policymakers—including members of the Women’s Alliance for Security Leadership (WASL)—will convene in Oslo, Norway to discuss the gendered aspects of disengagement, rehabilitation and reintegration, with a focus on programs for women and girls associated with violent extremist groups and the policies that affect them.
The Prevention Project, together with the International Civil Society Action Network and some 60 other civil society actors and organizations from around the globe with expertise on and experience in preventing violent extremism, sent a letter to the UN Under-Secretary-General for Counter-Terrorism, Mr. Vladimir Voronkov.
