Gender and Conflict Transformation

This project addresses the integration of gender into transformative conflict resolution in complex conflicts, including terrorism and extremism settings. The research addresses the relationship between gender norms and counter-terrorism policy and considers masculinities in the context of fragile conflict settings that intersect with terrorism recruitment and engagement with violent actors. The project includes several outputs specific to Northern Ireland, focused on learning the lessons from the Northern Ireland conflict related to gender on a global scale. Outputs include a blog post series and an event at the Human Rights Council 2021 (Geneva).
