Literature Review: The Links Between Radicalisation and Violence Against Women

April 6, 2021


This literature review provides definitions of religious supremacism and fundamentalism on the one hand and racial or white supremacism, the UK Far Right and the Alt Right on the other. It also contains a discussion of gendered approaches to preventing violent extremism. The review identified significant gaps in knowledge and research but explores five cross cutting issues: purity and imperialism; particular manifestations of intimate partner and family violence; sexual violence; anti-feminism; and masculinity.
