POLICY & ADVOCACY
The Australian WPS Coalition seeks to influence Australian Government policies on peace and security to adopt a transformative women, peace and security agenda that shifts away from militarised and securitised approaches to a people-centered human security approach to sustainable peace and development.
Our policy and advocacy work involves advising National Action Plan implementing agencies through our participation in governance mechanisms, working with other women peace and security networks and coalitions, policy submissions and engaging with our members through the annual civil society dialogue.
MONITORING & ANALYSIS
Monitor the implementation of the Australian National Action plan on UNSCR 1325 and other international commitments made by the Australian government on issues related to women, peace and security.
