An esteemed organization working to prevent and resolve deadly conflict around the world through field based analysis and high level advocacy, the International Crisis Group has more than 100 staff members on 5 continents generating analytical reports with recommendations targeted at key international decision makers.
The Institute for Inclusive Security works closely with Crisis Group staff to ensure that their reports contain gender analysis and call attention to the important contributions women are making to conflict prevention and resolution around the world. Inclusive Security also coordinates with Crisis Group to increase the number of women in high-level positions at the United Nations by creating and promoting rosters of qualified women.
In June 2008, Crisis Group and Inclusive Security staff advocated together for the inclusion of measures in UN Security Council Resolution 1820 that build on UNSCR 1325 to increase women’s agency in conflict.
Former Deputy President Don Steinberg also played in advocating for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 as part of its tenth anniversary, as part of the Civil Society Advisory Group to the UN on Women, Peace, and Security.
From her position on Crisis Group’s board, Inclusive Security chair Ambassador Swanee Hunt provides important gender perspectives to deliberations by the board.
