2022 Annual Report
For over 35 years, WIIS has worked to achieve gender equality and promote leadership opportunities for women in the international peace and security sector.
As has so often been the case, 2022’s peace and security challenges were urgent, widespread, and interconnected. Despite the successes, there are also setbacks. We saw conflicts and humanitarian crises deepen, including the war in Ukraine, the protests in Iran, Afghanistan, Sudan, and China, as well as persistent conflicts in Syria, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Somalia, and Haiti.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has largely receded, we remain far from achieving gender parity. WIIS takes on this challenge daily by facilitating our members’ access to a growing global community of mentors and experts, professional development resources and support, and insightful analyses on gender and women’s representation.
