Next Generation WPS+GPS Symposium in Washington, D.C.
WIIS is pleased to announce the launch of the Next Generation WPS+GPS Symposium. The five-day symposium will examine international security challenges from a gender perspective and bring together an international cohort of 24 graduate students (MA and PhD students). The symposium is scheduled to take place November 12-19, 2017 in Washington, D.C.
The symposium is a part of a larger initiative designed to bridge existing divides between the traditional security community and the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) community. The WPS+GPS Initiative seeks to reframe and broaden the WPS agenda to include a Gender, Peace, and Security (GPS) agenda in order to advance knowledge and build and support a community of international security experts that is more diverse and knowledgeable about gender analyses of complex international security challenges. Open to: applicants between the ages of 25 and 40 years old, currently enrolled in or recent graduate of a Masters or PhD program in international affairs, security studies, gender studies, anthropology, political science, international development or a related discipline.
