This policy brief explores the links between women’s roles and perceptions, gender relations and the spread of fundamentalist ideologies and extremist violence. It synthesises new research evidence on the participation and leadership of women and women-led organisations in strategies to prevent violent extremism (PVE) based on a pilot project in Indonesia. In doing so, it directly addresses the lack of gendered analysis of counterterrorism (CT), countering violent extremism (CVE) and PVE dynamics and agendas in South-East Asia.
