NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security

The Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights is a member of the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security (NGOWG), along with Amnesty International, CARE International, Cordaid, Global Justice Center, Global Network of Women Peacebuilders, Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict, Human Rights Watch, International Alert, MADRE, Nobel Women’s Initiative, OutRight Action International, Oxfam, Plan International, Refugees International, Women’s Refugee Commission, Saferworld and Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom.

The NGOWG on Women, Peace and Security advocates for the equal and full participation of women in all efforts to create and maintain international peace and security. Formed in 2000 to call for a Security Council resolution on Women, Peace and Security, the NGOWG now focuses on implementation of all Security Council resolutions that address this issue, and serves as a bridge between women’s human rights defenders working in conflict-affected situations and policymakers at U.N. Headquarters.
