Inclusivity-Based Community of Practice 

 

The Network’s primary mechanism of advancing its inclusive efforts within peacemaking and broader peacebuilding processes is through its Inclusivity-Based Community of Practice (CoP). The Inclusivity-Based Community of Practice offers a space and opportunity for both Network members and non-members who are experts in the Women, Peace and Security and Youth, Peace and Security spaces, to build and cultivate learning, relationships and partnerships. The current silos that exist at the global level between faith-based actors and organizations and secular actors and organizations working to advance gender equality and youth leadership and participation is hindering policy and advocacy efforts. Learning about and acknowledging shared challenges, showcasing examples of best practices, and strategically constructing a collaborative way forward, is essential to address these complex and multifaceted problems that we face today.

If you are interested in joining the Inclusivity-based Community of Practice, which is set to launch later in 2021, kindly email Jessica Roland at jessica.roland@kua.fi for more information.
