GSX Thematic Working Group
“The Nexus of Economic Policy, Gender and Extremism”
This working group focuses on economic policies and examines the relevance and linkages between macroeconomic policies, particularly neoliberalism, and the rise of extremism through a gendered lens.
In March 2017, the working group convened in New York for the 2nd in a series of thematic working groups of the Global Solutions Exchange (GSX) bringing together economists, development and human rights specialists and country based practitioners and experts to discuss and analyze the issues, and determine the next steps for cross-sectoral engagement and prioritization of necessary research, policy advocacy, and practice.
The meeting report was launched at the annual high-level UNGA GSX meeting on September 21st, 2017.
