In the aftermath of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, the international community brought a new focus and urgency to countering terrorism financing through criminalization, sanctions and freezing of assets, and de-risking. To date, the gender and human rights implications of these countering terrorism financing policies have escaped scrutiny.

Through research, interviews, surveys, and statistical analysis, the International Human Rights Clinic at Duke University School of Law and the Women Peacemakers Program seeks to better understand how responses to terrorism and violent extremism may in practice squeeze women’s rights and their defenders between terror and counter-terror.

Panelists for this discussion include:

  • Isabelle Geuskens, Executive Director of Women Peacemakers Program
  • Jayne Huckerby, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the International Human Rights Clinic
  • Sarah Adamczyk, Supervising Attorney and Clinical Fellow of the International Human Rights Clinic

The event is co-sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, International Human Rights Clinic, and the Center for International and Comparative Law. Lunch will be served. To RSVP, or for more information, contact Ali Prince.
