The most recent resolution in the Women, Peace and Security architecture, UN Security Council Resolution 2242, raised the possibility of alignment with the Countering Violent Extremism agenda at the UN and beyond.
In this free event 'Countering Violence, Countering Extremism: The Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Service of Countering Violent Extremism' Professor Laura J. Shepherd will examine the articulation of prevention in the context of UN counter-terrorism efforts and the WPS agenda, in order to understand how the alignment of WPS and CVE agendas became possible. She will then explore the discourse of CVE intervention programmes in Australia, to explore the likely impact of alignment between CVE and the WPS agenda in this context and begin to draw tentative insight about this new policy development on the Women, Peace and Security agenda and on violence prevention initiatives more broadly.
Free and open to all, unticketed. Full information: http://www.lse.ac.uk/women-peace-security/upcoming-events/27-4-2018
