Framework for a gendered analysis of countering violent extremism (CVE) policy and programs in Victoria (Framework).

Project: Research

Project Description

This project will develop a framework supporting the application of a gendered analysis of countering violent extremism (CVE) policy and programs in Victoria (Framework).

Background: The Department intends to apply the Framework to policy and program responses to all forms of violent extremism. The Framework will contribute to the increased effectiveness of policy and programs by:
• promoting gender sensitive practices in policies, program and service delivery
• facilitating an increased understanding of the experiences of women and men and their roles and relationships in relation to violent extremism
• ensuring Victorian Government staff who lead CVE policy and program development and delivery understand gender analysis and how to apply it and integrate it into their work.

This project will include:
• assessment and integration of the most up to date research evidence and good practice knowledge into the Framework
• consultation with members of the Department’s CVE Unit to undertake a scoping assessment of existing policies and initiatives and how the Framework can add value
• following the provision of a draft Framework, a workshop/meeting with the Department’s CVE Unit, and other stakeholders as advised by the Department’s CVE Unit, to receive and respond to feedback on the Framework
• finalisation of the Framework after that workshop/meeting.
