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.

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.

  • Afghan Women’s Network (AWN)
  • Center for Civil Society and Democracy in Syria (CCSDS)
  • Nyein (Shalom) Foundation, Myanmar
  • PAIMAN Alumni Trust, Pakistan
  • Research Institute for Women, Peace, and Security (RIWPS), Afghanistan


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. We connect them with women leaders and civil society representatives to foster knowledge sharing and collaboration, and provide actionable research and evidence-based models to strengthen their capacity for inclusion.
