Launch of the New Global Women, Peace and Security index
26 Oct 2017 -  A high-level panel discussion to launch the new global Women, Peace and Security index.
Women are at the heart of efforts to achieve sustainable peace through inclusion, justice, and security worldwide.  The United Nations is working to increase women’s participation and incorporate gender perspectives in all UN peace and security efforts.
Global indices are a way to assess and compare national progress against such goals, by distilling an array of complex information into a single number and ranking.
The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security and the Peace Research Institute of Oslo have developed a new global index that captures both peace and security—and women’s inclusion and justice—for the first time ever.
