Project Description 


The "Gender and Identity Factors Platform for Countering Violent Extremism and Counter-Terrorism" (G&IFP) is a UNOCT/UNCCT project funded by Canada and co-led by Global Affairs Canada.

The project consists of setting up a multi-faceted digital platform to support the effective integration of gender and intersectional factors into counter-terrorism and the prevention of violent extremism (CT/PCVE) through a rights-based approach. The digital hub will be integrated within UNOCT’s Connect & Learn Platform and will function as a knowledge center, bringing together UN entities, Civil Society Organizations, practitioners, researchers, and Member States to generate tools and knowledge products as well as share experiences and good practices, on integrating gender and intersectional perspectives to CT/PCVE programming and policy development.

The platform will encompass a repository of research, literature, guidance and tools including briefing papers and case studies. The Platform will intermediate the delivery of training packages put together by Gender and CT/PCVE experts for specific target groups, and the establishment of communities of practice comprising different thematic areas. The platform will also include a forum for the discussion of emerging issues and ‘burning’ topics, and a repository of experts and trainers, as well as institutions, that can be contacted to form part of different missions, events, training, and initiatives and who have technical level expertise and knowledge on gender and intersectional factors and CT/PCVE.
