The WPS Group is launching a virtual training on advancing and implementing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in peace and security missions, to take place over two half-days.

The course aims to deepen practitioners' understanding of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, and provide them with valuable insights and tools to implement the agenda in conflict and post-conflict contexts. The course will be conducted virtually over two mornings and will combine theory and practical exercises to maximize learning.

With this course, you will gain:

  1. An in-depth understanding of the WPS agenda, emerging themes and how different conflict and post-conflict countries are implementing the agenda.

  2. A more in-depth understanding of the views and roles of civil society regarding the WPS agenda.

  3. Specific skills and tools to conduct gendered conflict analysis and advocate for gender-responsive programming.

  4. Specific guidance when it comes to advising on gender equality and WPS and tools to address resistance. 

Please get in touch for more details. The programme is available in English and in French.



The course will be facilitated by a team of gender equality advisers and trainers with specific expertise in civil society advocacy, security sector reform and peacekeeping.
