Women and Violent Radicalization in Jordan

02.09.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This study examines the gendered dimensions of radicalization in Jordan, with the aim of understanding and fighting violent extremism in a country surrounded by regional tensions. The study focuses on the perceptions of men and women of radicalization in their communities, the risks that women and girls may face from radicalization, the roles that women occupy in both the radicalization and de-radicalization processes, and whether current efforts at de-radicalization are gender-sensitive.
