Women in Counterterrorism (WCT)

WIIS Brussels is running an EU-funded project to develop tools and guidelines to increase the participation of women in the criminal justice response to terrorism. These tools will function as a reference guide for partner countries and institutions which intend to increase the participation of women in this field and in the capacity building programmes for the delivery of technical assistance in criminal justice matters and the fight against terrorism.

This 18-month project (January 2022 – June 2023) will identify key challenges to women’s participation in the criminal justice response to terrorism, be it culture (e.g. that of law enforcement institutions or the judiciary), training and education, or perceived operational barriers (e.g.: biases surrounding women’s roles and competencies). Case-studies will be put forward to derive possible solutions to these challenges.

Project activities include an in-depth literature review, mapping of key concepts, documents, organisations and initiatives on women’s role in CT and a broad consultation with key stakeholders to develop and validate the guidance.
