The Global Center is in the process of finalizing a Gender and Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (P/CVE) Policy Toolkit. The initiative was launched in April 2020 by the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) and is co-led by the governments of Australia and Indonesia and implemented by the Global Center. Building on the Good Practices on Women and CVE and its Addendum, with a focus on mainstreaming gender, the Policy Toolkit provides practical, action-oriented guidance for policy makers and practitioners on designing, implementing, and monitoring and evaluating gender-sensitive P/CVE policies and programs. The Policy Toolkit draws on critical insights from experts with experience in gender-sensitive policies and programming, as well from good practices developed by the GCTF, United Nations, European Union, and other international and regional organizations. The Global Center works closely with Dr. Jacqui True, Professor of International Relations and Director of Monash University’s Centre for Gender, Peace and Security and a project advisory council comprised of eleven gender and P/CVE experts. The Policy Toolkit is informed by a global consultation process and series of virtual workshops hosted from October 2020 to February 2021.
