Abstract

This volume offers a feminist critique of counter- and deradicalization programs, including those under the umbrella of 'preventing and countering violent extremism.' Based on insights from five countries and examples from elsewhere, the text shows how, collectively, efforts rely on particular narratives of agency, security, and human rights. Putting gender at the centre of the analysis reveals significant limitations in antiradicalization work-in construction, operation, and evaluation.
