On 5-6 July 2023, CONNEKT organised the Cross-Regional Women’s Forum on violent extremism (VE) in Tarragona, Spain. Hosted by Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV), the gathering addressed the role of women within the frame of VE and engaged them in the reflection on the drivers of VE and the identification of prevention measures, particularly taking into account women’s agency in the prevention of violent extremism (PVE). All the members of the Consortium met with 11 women involved in the field of social intervention and resilience-building to promote the views of women in the field of PVE.
This report summarizes the contents of this Forum and includes key insights and recommendations on the engagement of women in P/CVE developed by the participants.
