Gender and Security

Who we are

Gender equality is one of DCAF’s core operational principles. It is reflected in our policy and research work, and integrated into the design and implementation of our programmes and projects. The Gender and Security Division leads our work on promoting gender equality in all aspects of security sector reform and governance, ensuring that DCAF remains a leading global player in this field. 

Our programmes and initiatives are all practice-oriented, backed by 20 years of operational experience around the world, and designed to support the implementation of international frameworks such as the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals, and the Sustaining Peace Agenda.
