The John Jay Center on Terrorism’s first seminar for the spring semester will be held on Friday, March 1, 2013 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm when Jayne Huckerby will speak on the topic Gender, National Security, and Counter-Terrorism: Human Rights Perspectives.
Human rights analyses of the counter-terrorism measures implemented in the aftermath of 11 September 2001 have assumed that men suffer the most—both numerically and in terms of the nature of rights violations endured. This assumption has obscured the ways that women, men, and sexual minorities differently experience counter-terrorism. By integrating gender into a human rights analysis of counter-terrorism—and human rights into a gendered analysis of counter-terrorism—the new volume Gender, National Security, and Counter-Terrorism: Human Rights Perspectives aims to reverse this trend
