Join the launch of the third edition of the global Women, Peace and Security Index, which provides a comprehensive measure of women’s wellbeing and their empowerment around the world. The 2021 WPS Index features new country rankings, sub-national data for Afghanistan and Pakistan, and an analysis of displaced women’s status in five African nations. Expert panelists will discuss regional trends, changes in country-level scores, remaining gaps, and how the Index can serve as a critical tool for policymakers, practitioners, and activists alike.
