DEADLINE – JUNE 1, 2017
WIIS is pleased to announce the launch of the Next Generation WPS+GPS Symposium. The five-day symposium will examine international security challenges from a gender perspective and bring together an international cohort of 24 graduate students (MA and PhD students). The symposium is scheduled to take place November 12-19, 2017 in Washington, D.C.
The symposium is a part of a larger initiative designed to bridge existing divides between the traditional security community and the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) community. The WPS+GPS Initiative seeks to reframe and broaden the WPS agenda to include a Gender, Peace, and Security (GPS) agenda in order to advance knowledge and build and support a community of international security experts that is more diverse and knowledgeable about gender analyses of complex international security challenges.
The WPS+GPS Initiative is funded by Carnegie Corporation of New York and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
All costs associated with symposium travel and accommodation will be covered by WIIS.
