ESCWA Centre for Women is organizing an expert group meeting on 4 and 5 December 2018, at the UN House in Beirut, bringing together a group of regional and international experts in Women, Peace and Security: National Women’s Machineries (NWMs), and institutional resilience, to discuss and provide input to the initial draft of a study titled “Women, Peace and Security: National Women Machineries, Conflict, Occupation and Transition in the Arab Region”.

This study, developed in partnership with the Lebanese American University and the London School of Economics, aims to analyze the impact of conflict, occupation and political transition on the life-cycle of NWMs in the Arab region by examining their institutional resilience in conflict, occupation, post-conflict and transition contexts. It also brings forward regional experiences from Yemen, Jordan, Palestine, and Tunisia and suggests a set of drivers, both internal and external, that contribute to reinforcing and maintaining the institutional resilience of NWMs with reference to international standards and good practices.
