Dear User,

Thank you for registering and welcome to the Gender and Identity Factors Platform – multi-faceted digital platform, which is aimed at furthering the development of good practices, generating new knowledge and fostering communities of practice in countering violent extremism and counter-terrorism with gender, intersectionality and human rights at the forefront of activities. This user-led platform will bring together United Nations Member States, UN entities, civil society organizations, practitioners and researchers.

The platform will include a library of human-rights based resources dedicated to gender and intersectionality in counter-terrorism and preventing and countering violent extremism (CT/PCVE).

Through communities of practice, the platform will offer a space to discuss new and emerging trends, as well as good practices and lessons learned with regards to gender and intersectionality in CT/PCVE.

It will also offer training opportunities, starting with a training for National Centers of Counter-terrorism.

The Gender and Identity Factors Platform (GIFP) is in the early stages of implementation.

You can already explore – our Resource Library, which can be found in the main menu at the top of the page .

The interactive part of the platform will become operational in early 2023. It will only be available for registered users. To register - please click on "Sign Up" in the top right corner of the page.

On 1 February 2023 we will post a survey for all users to identify the first communities of practice and the issues to be discussed within these. The survey will be available for registered users.

We look forward in engaging with you in 2023!
