Good Practices on Women and Countering Violent Extremism

The inclusion of women and girls and gender mainstreaming are often overlooked in efforts to counter violent extremism, despite the participation of women and girls in violent extremism and terrorism, as well as their roles in prevention. A prerequisite for an effective CVE policy is comprehension of the complexity of violent extremism. All interested States are encouraged to consider using these non-binding good practices while taking into account their local needs and conditions, varied histories, and cultures as they look to develop and implement national CVE policies and/or programs. These good practices can also be used to shape any bilateral, multilateral, technical, or other capacity-building assistance provided in this area. Any programs, policies, laws, or actions implemented in furtherance of these good practices must be in full compliance with States’ obligations under all relevant international law, including customary international law, international humanitarian law where applicable, as well as international human rights law and international refugee law.
