What Countering Terrorism Financing Costs Gender Equality & Security

March 22, 2017

"Tightening the Purse Strings: What Countering Terrorism Financing Costs Gender Equality and Security" represents the culmination of research, interviews, surveys, and statistical analysis carried out by the International Human Rights Clinic at Duke Law and the Women Peacemakers Program (WPP) to begin to fill the gap in understanding how responses to terrorism and violent extremism may in practice squeeze women's rights and their defenders between terror and counter-terror. Panelists include: Isabelle Geuskens, Executive Director of WPP, and Duke Law's Jayne Huckerby and Sarah Adamczyk. Co-sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic, the Center for International and Comparative Law, Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, International Law Society, and the Human Rights Law Society.
