Focus Programs:
Gender, Peace & Security (GPS)

The GPS Focus Program will generate new high impact knowledge that can influence national and international policy. It will bring women’s voices and gendered perspectives into analyses of peace and security processes and conflict prevention. The Program will build strong, collaborative networks with scholars and practitioners in the Asia Pacific Region and beyond. It has three streams aligned with the UN Women, Peace and Security agenda established by the Security Council in 2000:

  1. Understanding Participation in Peace and Security Processes
  2. Analysing the Structural and Gender-Specific Drivers of Conflict and Violence
  3. Transforming National and International Security Policy
