Ci - Countering Violent Extremism

Women and Terror special - hosted by Dr Charles Kriel

Welcome to a special edition of Ci: Countering Violent Extremism - Women and Terror, with host Dr Charles Kriel.

Women are terrorism’s front-line victims, from Islamic State through the Maoist Insurgency. But is that the whole story? What of ideologically-driven women like Sally Jones? We speak with the author Professor Mia Bloom about women with agency in the field of terror.

Islamic State is using the sexual enslavement of women as a tool to recruit sex offenders. Researcher Nikita Malik tells us about her new report on ISIS, Boko Haram and women.

And we speak with prominent London art historian Dr Anna Marazuela Kim, a groundbreaking expert in terrorism and art.
