About WGWC

WGWC is a network platform for civil society and government that works to strengthen gender mainstreaming in policies and interventions to combat radicalism and extremism (terrorism) in Indonesia. Followed by 24 organizations from civil society and government to work in the prevention of violent extremism declared a collaboration platform called Working Group on Women and P / CVE (WGWC) on July 24, 2017 in Bogor. The WGWC is a shared house for actors working on gender mainstreaming in preventing violent extremism. At the same time, the movement has built a foundation for collaborative work and invited more new partners to build the women's and P / CVE movements in Indonesia.

Born out of concern over the increasing involvement of women in extremist networks and the over-emphasis on masculinity in approaches to countering violent extremism, on 24 July 2017, representatives from 16 civil society organizations, ministries and government bodies working in preventing violent extremism founded a collaboration platform: the Working Group on Women and P / CVE (WGWC). Government partners in the WGWC include the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas), the Directorate General for Corrections, the Ministry of Social Affairs' "Handayani" Marsudi Putra Social Shelter (PSMP), the National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT), the Ministry of Education, and the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs.

WGWC's work is based on UN Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security, with a focus on four pillars: Prevention, Protection, Participation and Relief-Rehabilitation. WGWC serves as a home for actors working to mainstream gender perspectives in order to prevent violent extremism. WGWC is a collaborative platform and invites more partners to join towards building a women's movement as part of P / CVE efforts in Indonesia.
