The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security is setting a course for a more stable, peaceful, and just world by examining and highlighting the roles of women in forging peace and growing economies.
We engage in cutting-edge research on women’s roles in peace and security efforts, economic empowerment, countering violent extremism, and mitigating climate change and natural disasters. Our signature Women, Peace and Security Index offers a more comprehensive measure of women’s wellbeing in over 150 countries.
We host global summits with foreign officials and global thought leaders on critical issues and celebrate peacemakers at our annual award ceremonies. Our Bridging Theory & Practice symposiums facilitate in-depth conversations with top policymakers, practitioners, and academics.
We communicate our original research findings and amplify the voices of women peacebuilders through our Seeking Peace podcast, media appearances, video & oral history projects, social media channels, newsletter, and blog.
We invest in the next generation by engaging undergraduate and graduate Georgetown students in popular on-campus events and programs, classroom instruction, research assistant and volunteer positions, and research fellowships.
