GNWP engages in dialogues with Defense Ministries, military and police forces in the implementation of the WPS Resolutions in a number of countries since 2010. Engaging with the Defense Ministries, military and police forces is key, because uniformed personnel patrolling Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps understand the special needs of women and girls: they are able to take more appropriate actions to protect them from sexual and gender-based violence. Furthermore, given their direct involvement in conflict, military officials have distinct insights that inform peace negotiations. Engaging with the security sector on matters of women and peace and security opens up crucial possibilities for cooperation in addressing security concerns.
