In 2017, Women’s Regional Network (WRN) had identified gaps in understanding of issues related to women, peace and security (WPS); and the need for information dissemination and perspective building among students and civil society actors in South Asia.

The WPS course has been a flagship course of WRN where the selected participants have the opportunity to interact with and be mentored by women peace practitioners, feminist law professionals and eminent activists not only from South Asia but also from other regions of the world. The course will provide a platform for participants from diverse South Asian backgrounds to interact with each other, thereby enriching and deepening their understanding of the issues discussed in the course. WRN is confident that this course will inspire and provide directions to the participants to continue their engagement in the field of women, peace and security.

Over 60 participants from Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have actively participated in the intense and insightful sessions in the last two cycles of the course held in 2018 and 2019. In the current cycle which is scheduled for December 2021, we aim to select 50 participants from among the applicants, based on the quality of their applications. This is with the objective of ensuring deeper  interactions during the sessions of the course.

Some of the topics that will be covered in the course are:

  • Gender inclusive understanding of peacebuilding and peacekeeping: South Asian perspectives;
  • Mapping conflicts and gender: case studies from South Asia;
  • Feminist perspectives on justice and reparations;
  • State security & human security; and
  • Feminist Insights: Women leaders in peace movements and their agenda.
