Quarterly Research Review: Radicalised Women

Published by Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN) Policy Support


This Quarterly Research Review summarises the current state of research in relation to the topic of radicalised women. The aim of this review is to provide policymakers with a compilation of the most relevant publications and their key messages concerning the radicalisation processes of women, the roles they play in extremist groups (of all types) and the mechanisms available to deal with radicalised women. The literature draws primarily on European women’s experiences of radicalisation. In a European context, this means focusing on women over 18.

Authored by Emily Winterbotham and Carola García-Calvo. With the support of Marta Driessen and Petra Regeni.
