RAN REHABILITATION - Rehabilitation for female VETOs and the role of masculinity in DDR

Thursday 14 March 12.00-18.00 and Friday 15 March 09.00-13.00 CET. This meeting will take place in Zagreb, Croatia

Background and aim of the meeting

In recent years, gender has increasingly been acknowledged as a crucial element in P/CVE and specifically in the rehabilitation from (violent) extremism. Men and women enter and exit (violent) extremism for a variety of reasons, some of which include a gender element. Accordingly, clients of disengagement, deradicalisation, or rehabilitation (DDR) programmes require individualised support in their distancing from (violent) extremism that accounts for and addresses the gendered elements of their experience. This also includes considerations as to how gender norms and roles will affect their reintegration into society. While the number of female violent and extremist terrorist offenders (VETOs) is relatively small compared to male VETOs, numbers have increased in the past few years. Therefore, there is a need to re-examine the necessary rehabilitation work with this target group and to simultaneously reflect on how masculinity is addressed in existing DDR programmes.
