Our work is underpinned by the diverse and interdisciplinary research backgrounds and practitioner experience of our members, working across research streams organised into three working groups.
Find out how this group is investigating the nature of PMSCs, how they impact the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda and what action states need to take.
This group will explore the role of states in producing, addressing, and regulating the intersectionally gendered effects of security outsourcing and PMSCs.
This group seeks to investigate the link between the local and global security operations and how this intersects with the WPS Agenda.
This is a smaller specialist group that is focusing on developing, in collaboration with the other groups, key toolkits and policy documents on how state and regional actors could include private security within the Women, Peace and Security agenda.
