Drawing on the approaches and strategies outlined in the DCAF/OSCE-ODIHR/UN Women Gender and Security Toolkit, the webinar will endeavour to discuss the state of affairs of implementation of the WPS Agenda from a security Sector governance lens. In particular, discussions will address the following questions:
1. What are key aspects of effective SSG within the security sector to help achieve the goals of the WPS in real terms? What are best practice examples?
2. What are the outstanding challenges from an SSG lens (e.g. insufficient inclusivity, transparency, accountability, etc) that prevent progress in the implementation of the Agenda?
3. How can the oversight of the security sector (by Ombuds institutions, NHRIs, parliaments, CSOs) successfully monitor and hold security sector to account for the implementation of the WPS and achieving gender equality?
4. What are the successful examples of security sector institutions closely cooperating with civil society organizations to strengthen their transparency for WPS and gender equality?
