Meet the academic

Dr Katherine Brown is a reader at The University of Birmingham in Religion & Global Security. Over the past decade she has been researching the role of gender and religion in relation to Islamic extremism, and has an interest in gender-mainstreaming counter terrorism. Katherine’s current work focuses on gender, religion and resilience in global governance efforts in relation to terrorism. This is part of her larger project, Humanities for Resilience, which is funded by the AHRC, that looks at how marginalised communities can be better resilient to the challenges they face, such as terrorism. She is the author of Gender, Religion and Extremism: finding women in anti-radicalisation (Oxford University Press, 2020), and has been an expert witness in court cases involving the radicalisation of women and children in the UK.
