​In connection with the recent launch of the Norwegian government’s Action Plan for Women's Rights and Gender Equality in Foreign and Development Policy 2016-2020 an Advocacy Group was also announced. 

PRIO’s Helga Hernes has been invited by Foreign Minister Børge Brende to join this group. 

​The mandate of the group is to provide input and advice to the Minister on how to – in new and creative ways - implement women’s rights and gender equality in Norwegian foreign policy. The group will meet with the Minister 1-2 times per year.
