Abstract

The research on the economic empowerment program for the wives of ex convicted terrorists in Indonesia is considerably scarce. Consequently, economic empowerment is necessary to be implemented as deradicalization effort for ex-terrorist prisoners’ families besides the one for the perpetrator or former perpetrators of criminal terrorism acts. Economic empowerment which is carried out by the National Counterterrorism Agency of Indonesia (BNPT) mostly tends to focus on the perpetrators (convicted terrorists) and former perpetrators (ex-convicted terrorists), whereas the families, especially the wives of ex convicted terrorists have significant roles in supporting their family's financial condition while their husbands are being imprisoned. This study aims to explore the implementation of an economic empowerment program for the wives of ex convicted terrorists and to explore the improvements needed to maximize economic empowerment programs for the wives of ex convicted terrorists. It also utilizes a qualitative method with the approach of literature study and interviews. The result shows that gender-based economic empowerment is crucial to be done, encouraging wives to master useful skills and to be independent. They also create prosperity so that they will not be engaged in radical-terrorism groups
