Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict: “Mothers to Bombers: The Evolution of Indonesian Women Extremists”

The Jakarta-based Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict's latest report focuses on the evolution of the role of women in Indonesian extremist organizations. The report  follows the December 2016 arrest of two Indonesian women as would-be suicide bombers and examines  how their desire for action coincided with the decision of ISIS leaders in Syria that in emergency conditions, women could be tactically deployed in jihad operations.
