Recognizing we can’t—and shouldn’t—change the centuries-old security paradigm on our own, we have developed a wide range of partnerships with civil society, governments, international non-governmental organizations, and multilateral organizations across the world.

Civil Society Partners

Local stakeholders best understand their own needs and the challenges and opportunities present in their countries. At Inclusive Security, we believe they are the true experts and agents of change. Their distinct perspectives, life experiences, and relationships maximize the effectiveness of our joint programming and the sustainability of our outcomes. Moreover, they have a right to participate in interventions into their own communities. We work in partnership with civil society organizations in countries across the world, including Afghanistan, Kenya, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Syria, Thailand, Tunisia, Uganda, and here in the U.S.

Governmental Partners

Collaborating with policymakers is critical to effecting change. We work with our governmental partners to create and promote high-impact strategies, plans, and policies for increasing women’s participation in peace and security processes. In countries like Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Canada, Indonesia, Italy, Jordan, Finland, Nigeria, Moldova, Norway, Serbia, Spain, Ukraine, and the US, we connect officials with women from civil society to foster knowledge-sharing and collaboration to strengthen their capacity for inclusion.

International Non-Governmental Partners

We leverage our partnerships with international organizations to scale our impact and build the nascent field of women, peace, and security.
