WIPSEN Mission

Overall, WIPSEN has four objectives it wishes to achieve:

1. Provide a platform for women across all levels of African societies to exchange, share, and harmonize strategies for women's leadership and build coalitions to promote peace and security in Africa.
2. Strengthen women's capacities to sustain their active engagement in conflict prevention, peace building, peace support operations, and human security at policy, research, and praxis levels.
3. Promote the twin approach of mainstreaming gender in peace and security mechanisms and institutions while at the same time mainstreaming peace and security in all gender mechanisms, policies, and institutions.
4. Influence policy development and implementation on women, peace and security in Africa through rigorous research, strategic advocacy, and documentation.
