Women at the Center: Building Human Security Through Military Partnerships​

In virtually every African conflict and post-conflict situation, women's well-being impacts the overall success of the mission and is crucial to long-term regional security. It is widely agreed that with women peacekeepers, particularly in the ranks of officers, egregious misconduct against women can be reduced. What is needed now is intensive work with African militaries to encourage policies of promoting women in their ranks and to assure that there is firm control by officers over their own troops and sufficient safeguards in place against rebel groups preying on women.
