Terrorism, Women, and Violent Extremism: The Missing Links
Insert shortcode
12:00 to 14:00
21-03-16

Please join us at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for a round table discussion on terrorism and violent extremism. How has this challenge changed over time and how effective have our policy responses been? How do gender dynamics affect the root causes of violent extremism and terrorism? Are the current policy initiatives on Women and Countering Violent Extremism effective or do they reinforce gender stereotypes?

With the generous support of the Embassy of Liechtenstein in Washington, D.C., this round table will kick off a series of exploratory discussions on women, terrorism, and violent extremism. These round tables will provide a forum for bringing together an international group of experts and policymakers from the counter-terrorism and Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) communities.

Welcome Remarks:
Ambassador Claudia Fritsche, Embassy of Liechtenstein in Washington, D.C.

Panelists:
Ms. Sanam Anderlini, International Civil Society Action Network
Dr. Kathleen Kuehnast, U.S. Institute of Peace
Dr. Paul Pillar, Georgetown University
Dr. Lorenzo Vidino, George Washington
