Föreläsning
Jacqui True, 2018 års hedersdoktor vid Samhällsvetenskapliga fakulteten, håller en öppen föreläsning med titeln "Preventing Violent Extremism: Gender and Women’s Perspectives".

Föreläsningens tema

How do gender and the diverse roles of women help to counter and prevent fundamentalist ideologies and violent extremism? Violent extremism and acts of terrorism are a major threat to peace and security globally. Although there is growing awareness of how women and girls suffer from its impact, there is less understanding of the role that women may play in countering and preventing it. The UN Secretary-General’s Preventing Violent Extremism Plan of Action identifies gender equality and empowering women as one of its seven priority areas for action, while Security Council Resolution 2242 calls for taking into account a gender perspective when framing all prevention responses. This seminar presents new research evidence on the gendered nature of perceptions and responses to violent extremism and the participation and leadership of women and women-led organisations in preventing violent extremism in Bangladesh and Indonesia based on two recently completed research projects with country partners supported by UN Women and Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The research examines women’s perceptions of fundamentalist ideologies and extremist violence, whether they had observed any warning signs for rising extremism and terrorist violence; and how, in what ways, and why are they are countering or preventing extremist attitudes and behaviour.
