Launch of the 2021/22 Global Women, Peace and Security Index

​Please join us for the launch of the third edition of our signature research report: the global Women, Peace and Security Index.

​Mark your calendar to join the launch of the third edition of the global Women, Peace and Security Index, which provides a comprehensive measure of women's status across 170 countries. The 2021/22 WPS Index features new countries, investigation of pandemic impacts on women's inclusion and security, sub-national rankings for Afghanistan, Pakistan and the US, and an innovative new index capturing the status of displaced women in five African nations. Expert panelists will discuss global and regional trends, persistent and newly revealed gaps, and how the Index is a critical tool for policymakers, practitioners, and activists alike.
