Launch of the Second Edition of the Women, Peace and Security Index

Date: 
Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - 13:30 to 14:45
Where: 

United Nations Headquarters, Conference Room 6, New York, NY 10017

The Permanent Mission of Norway to the United Nations, the Permanent Mission of Uruguay to the United Nations, the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security, and the Peace Research Institute Oslo invite you to join a high-level event to launch the second edition of the global Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Index.

The inaugural WPS Index, launched in 2017, was the most comprehensive ranking to date of women’s well-being around the globe, measuring three key dimensions of women’s well-being—inclusion, justice, and security. The second edition includes several major innovations, including expanded coverage to 167 countries and assessment of data at the subnational level. Trends over time reveal important drivers of progress as well as major areas of concern.

Join the discussion as we share insights and discuss how the results can support transformative change in advance of the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.
