CHRGJ co-hosts event exploring gender, national security, and counter-terrorism in Africa

On August 26-27, the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) co-hosted "The United States and Gender, National Security, and Counter-terrorism Africa Workshop" in Niarobi, Kenya. The event, which was co-hosted by the Open Society Initiative for East Africa, aimed to generate recommendations for how the U.S. can ensure that its counter-terrorism presence in Africa advances gender equality.

The event was part of the Center's United States and Gender, National Security, and Counter-Terrorism Project. The project was initiated to increase awareness and discussion of the gender-related impacts on women and LGBTI individuals of U.S. counter-terrorism measures both in the U.S. and abroad. CHRGJ will hold two more regional workshops this year; one in Bangkok (September 13-14) in collaboration with the International Commission of Jurists; and one in Istanbul (October 15-16) in partnership with the Bilgi University Human Rights Research Center.
