Transforming Peacebuilding in the Eastern Neighbourhood: An overview of civil society in the South Caucasus and Moldova in the context of the women, peace, and security agenda

A separate case study on the impact of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine on Women, Peace and Security (WPS) in the region adds further context to the WPS landscape in the Eastern Neighbourhood.
