NYU Center for Global Affairs Research Practicum

NYU Center for Global Affairs Research Practicum

Since Fall 2019, GNWP has been partnering with the Center for Global Affairs in the School of Professional Studies at the New York University, to deliver a Student Practicum and explore conditions for women's meaningful participation in peace negotiations, implementation of peace agreements, and post-conflict recovery through rigorous research.

As part of the Practicum, which is organized periodically, a group of students works under the supervision of Clinical Professor Anne Marie Goetz to conduct research into priority themes related to women's meaningful participation in peace processes, identified by the GNWP team. GNWP supports the students, connecting them to our local and national partners, providing access to data, and to events and discussions at the UN and in other policy spaces. GNWP works together with the students to ensure that their findings are translated into concrete recommendations, which inform our global and local advocacy efforts to ensure women’s effective engagement in on-going peace talks and in longer-term recovery and conflict prevention.

In Fall 2019, the students explored the interlinkages between women's participation in peace negotiations and gender provisions in peace agreements; and women's political and economic inclusion post-conflict.

In Fall 2020, they began to exploring the impacts of COVID-19 on the implementation of gender provisions in peace agreements, as well as on women-led peacebuilding.
