The CIC National Capital Branch, in cooperation with the SecDev Foundation, present a special panel on “Women, Violent Extremism and the Internet: Empowering Prevention; Dealing with Risk” on 6 March 2017 in Ottawa.
Women can help prevent violent extremism. Women also commit violent extremist acts. Women can be cheerleaders, and women are often victims. These truths are made more complex as more and more women across the globe leapfrog onto the internet. Now more than ever, there is great potential for women to amplify their outreach and impact in preventing violent extremism. But with this empowerment comes increased risk.
Join us for a discussion on the complex role of women in the prevention of violent extremism, with a special focus on the role of the internet in amplifying this impact, and also in channeling the risks. This unique discussion will focus on the role that Canada can play in the context of UN Security Council 1325 strengthening the role of women in peace and security, and especially focus on counterterrorism and the prevention of violent extremism.
Our panel of experts will include:
The discussion will be moderated by our own Deirdre Collings co-founder and Executive Director of The SecDev Foundation. Previously, Deirdre worked for over two decades with the United Nations, NGOs, the University of Cambridge and the Canadian Institute for International Peace and Security, on, and in, countries affected by war and instability, in the Middle East, Africa and countries of the former Soviet Union.
This special panel is organized in cooperation with the United Nations Counterterrorism Executive Directorate (UNCTED), the ICT for Peace Foundation, the SecDev Foundation and supported by Public Safety Canada.
