Invisible Women - Gendered Dimensions of Return, Rehabilitation and Reintegration from Violent Extremism

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Jan 21, 2019 | UNDP, International Civil Society Action Network,

The women and children returning from transnational violent extremist and terrorist groups have been largely ignored by international policy and law. This global study, by the UNDP in partnership with the International Civil Society Action Network, responds to the need for research into women’s roles in reintegration and rehabilitation, and the work of women-led organizations in supporting these processes. The research underscores the need for an integrated, gender-sensitive approach that addresses not only those returning, but also the stigma, threats and vulnerabilities experienced by family and community members associated with violent extremism.
