PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security

PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security

​​​​​​​​​Established in 2015, the PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security is a resource hub at PRIO for gender, peace and security studies. Its activities include research and publishing, teaching, training and policy advice. The centre also holds conferences, seminars and workshops, providing a space for research and policy discussions among networks of national and international scholars, policymakers, NGOs, the media and students.

​The centre was developed out of PRIO's Gender, Conflict and Peacebuilding Research project, which was established in 2006 in response to the need for more scholarly resources in Norway on gender in relation to peace and security. Over the past decade, the project has been central in positioning PRIO as a leading research environment on gender, peace and security, and the centre will continue to further develop PRIO's knowledge and expertise in this field. The project was led by Dr Torunn L. Tryggestad, senior researcher at PRIO and now Director of the GPS Centre. Read more about Torunn here.

The centre was profiled in a previous issue of the PRIO Gender, Peace and Security Update newsletter, available to read online here.
