Excellent work on the letter to the Open WG! I just read about it on your website.

In light of the Open WG discussions and your letter, I thought it might be worth flagging this new publication by us (CR/Saferworld) on GPS in post-2015:

This paper complements the work done by our organisations around raising awareness on peace and security in relation to post-2015, and it also builds on work by others (including organisations active around gender equality).

You will find that we share quite a number of recommendations and have similar illustrative targets and indicators. I'd been keen to get your reflections! Feel free to share with contacts :-)

We are organising an event around this paper at CSW - 14th of March. Would be great to have you there, maybe even as panelist...?

Warm regards,

We publish Accord (recent issue: Positive peace for Lebanon), and have recently released our first Accord Insight publication: Accord Insight: Women building peace

In this paper, Saferworld and Conciliation Resources set out a vision for including
gender, peace and security in the post-2015 framework.4 A gender, peace and
security approach to post-2015 includes, but also goes beyond a focus on
women's empowerment. Inter alia, it means paying attention to the relationships
between gender, violence and inclusive decision-making. Building on our previous
recommendations for including peacebuilding commitments in the post-2015
development agenda, we suggest targets and indicators that illustrate how
gender, peace and security can best be integrated into the framework.
