The New Women, Peace and Security Index

Mortara Center for International Studies
3600 N St. NW, Washington, DC, 20007
The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security and the Peace Research Institute of Oslo have developed a new global index that captures both peace and security—and women’s inclusion and justice—for the first time ever. It draws on recognized international data sources to rank 153 countries around the world— covering more than 98 percent of the world’s population—in a way that focuses attention on key achievements and major shortcomings in the context of the Sustainable Development Agenda.
You are invited to hear highlights about the index from the lead author, Jeni Klugman, Managing Director of the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security moderated by Joel Hellman, Dean of the School of Foreign Service.
Copies of the report will be available at the event.
Breakfast from 8:15 a.m.
