Australia on the UN Security Council: Progressing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda (AJIA Special Issue)

The PSV-AP Project’s own CIs, Sara Davies and Jacqui True, are contributors in a new special issue of the Australian Journal of International Affairs:  “Australia on the UN Security Council: Progressing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda.”

The special issue coincides with Australia’s seat on the UN Security Council, shedding light on the priority given, at least in rhetoric, to issues relating to women, peace and security. According to the editors, the special issue “highlights the significance of the WPS agenda to, and in, Australia and the broader Asia-Pacific region, based on research evidence. The contributing authors investigate whether and to what extent a gap exists between the rhetoric and reality of Australia’s promotion of the WPS agenda on the UNSC and in other policy-making venues.”
