Featured Peacebuilding Group: Inclusive Security

This week’s Featured Peacebuilding Group is Inclusive Security.

Inclusive Security’s bold goal is to change the international security paradigm. Sustainable peace is possible only when those who shape policy include women and other affected groups in the prevention and transformation of violent conflict.

Guided by this belief and vision, Inclusive Security’s mission is to increase the participation of all stakeholders—particularly women—in preventing, resolving, and rebuilding after deadly conflicts. We do this by:

  • Strengthening the will and capacity of those who shape peace and security policy
  • Providing research on why inclusion matters and guidance on how it can be achieved
  • Equipping women to contribute effectively to peace processes
  • Building coalitions of diverse leaders who offer practical solutions to intractable conflicts
