This policy brief from Women Peacemakers Program summarizes a panel discussion which took place on March 12, 2015 on the issue of Counterterrorism Measures and Their Effects on the Implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda.  

Their findings concluded that a worrying emerging trend affecting women’s organizations worldwide is the impact of counterterrorism measures (CTM). In a follow up to the Global Study and High-level Review process, the report states that it is critical to shed light on the CTM-related structural obstacles that women’s organizations and activists are increasingly facing on the ground, in order to develop appropriate responses that can ensure that women’s transformative work for peace and gender justice around the world can actually continue to be supported in the future.
