  • Experience and knowledge of UNSCR 1325 and related UN resolutions and the Australian National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security.
  • Members must attend all scheduled meetings (members may provide information by email in lieu of attending or nominate a proxy to attend).
  • Members must agree to champion the Coalition within and outside of existing networks.
  • In the case of civil society organisations and networks:
    • One representative who will be able to commit to attending quarterly Coalition meetings and contribute substantively to the Coalition’s work.
    • A second staff member to act as secondary representative on the Coalition.
    • Member organisations must confirm in writing their two representatives to the Coalition.

Membership requests will be assessed by the Coalition Steering Committee. Membership may be withdrawn if members fail to meet the above criteria, including meeting attendance.
