February 2021 | Tackling Women’s Support of Far-Right Extremism: Experiences from Germany

This month, RESOLVE highlights recommended readings from the Policy Note, "Tackling Women’s Support of Far-Right Extremism: Experiences from Germany." In this note, author Seran de Leede explores the wide-ranging motivations of women joining far-right extremist groups and the different roles they can play in them. She includes wider research on why women leave far-right extremist groups and offers lessons learned and recommendations that may be helpful in optimizing prevention and exit programs aimed at women in far-right extremist groups beyond the German context. The publications in this What We’re Reading were suggested by the author to offer a more in-depth look at women in far-right extremist groups and prevent and exit- programs for women in far-right extremist groups.
