"From the backyard to the dining room”- This is a metaphor often used to describe the nature of the spread of violent extremism in Indonesia. A concerning and emerging trend in this spread is the role of families, especially women as perpetrators of these violent crimes. According to Indonesia's Working Group on Women in Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (WGWC) around 58% of all women jihadists in South-east Asia are from Indonesia.
Why do these women get involved? And how? These issues can be better understood by applying the gender lense to violent extremism. Such an analysis can greatly help the development of gender sensitive policies and programs in Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism. That was the reason underlying the birth of Working Group on Women and PCVE, to bring together government and non government actors to mainstream the gender perspective into national policy and program regarding PCVE.
Come join us at JDN in September to understand more on this issue from members of the WGWC itself. Our speakers will be Dwi Rubiyanti Kholifah and Tauvik Andri.
