Gouvernance, la paix et la sécurité

We focus on supporting organisations that are mobilizing women towards greater participation and leadership en peaceful community-building.

These organisations encourage political participation and leadership, la paix et la sécurité, and reform. This may include service provisions for women, peace negotiations, early-warning mechanisms, and post-conflict development.

These efforts may result in projects that support feminist thought leadership and networking, legal and policy development, and medical care.

In turn, these organisations will seek to achieve the following goals:

  • Greater access to government employment for women at all levels, including political office and decision-making.
  • Greater support among women for progressive values, droits de la femme, and accountability in government and public programs.
  • Implemented policy and provisions for women’s rights in peace and security.
