The Women’s Regional Network

The Women’s Regional Network (WRN) aims to provide an opportunity for key women leaders in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to unify efforts across borders and to build a common vision to address issues they face in trying to secure peace and stability in the region. Members of the WRN are especially concerned with the inter-linkages between security, extremisms, corruption and militarization, including the militarization of aid and development, as they impact women’s lives. 

The Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights created an annotated bibliography for the WRN, mapping recent studies, reports and other materials. The goals were to enable WRN members and partners to access relevant research, as well as to provide a guide to the landscape of current scholarly and policy debates related to these issues.
