From Policy to Practice: Realising Women, Peace and Security in Asia Pacific


  • Monash University, Caulfield Campus, Bldg H116 900 Dandenong Road Caulfield East, VIC, 3145 Australia (map)

Since the unanimous adoption of UNSCR 1325 in 2000, ‘Women, Peace and Security’ has gathered significant momentum as a cross-cutting agenda across all areas of global peace and security practice. However, as highlighted in the 2015 Global Study, implementation does not match the momentum. The purpose of this two-day collaborative and interactive workshop is to bring together members of civil society, academic researchers, policymakers from states and international organisations, and representatives from military and police services to focus on this problem and search for solutions, with particular focus upon our region, Asia Pacific.

In particular, the workshop will engage issues raised in the Global Study:

  • Supporting women’s leadership in peacebuilding;
  • The emerging relationship between WPS and the countering violent extremism (CVE) agenda;
  • Enhancing the role of civil society as advocates, agents, and monitors of the WPS agenda;
  • Integrating WPS into other international peace, security, human rights, and gender equality agendas;
  • Integrating WPS into the cultures of state, civil society, military, and local sectors.
