2016_09 Human Rights Council: MMM Statement highlights important role of mothers in countering radicalization and violent extremism
Participating at the Human Rights Council in Geneva. MMM took the floor in relation to the presentation of a report on "Best practices and lessons learned on how protecting and promoting human rights contribute to preventing and countering violent extremism”.
In its oral Statement, MMM highlighted the crucial role that mothers can play in preventing radicalisation and violent extremism, if only they are empowered to do so and their contribution better recognized. Mothers are often the first to recognize fear, resignation, frustration, and anger in their adolescent children. They often have a unique access to their children’s vulnerabilities that no Institution can have.
