Over the course of 18 months, Inclusive Security facilitated a series of workshops with 20 Pakistani policewomen, civil society leaders, and parliamentarians to advance women’s inclusion in the country’s efforts to counter violent extremism. In July 2016, this multi-sectoral group of women leaders developed policy recommendations for relevant international and national stakeholders focused on achieving two objectives: 1) increasing the recruitment, retention, and professionalization of Pakistani policewomen and 2) increasing women’s inclusion in the country’s national counterterrorism strategy.
