Published in 2009, Inclusive Security: A Curriculum for Women Waging Peace is a resource for policymakers and practitioners who want to better include women in peace processes.
This unique tool draws on more than a decade of original research and training by The Institute for Inclusive Security and accomplished women peace builders from areas including Afghanistan, Bosnia, Colombia, Haiti, Iraq, Israel & Palestine, Northern Ireland, Rwanda, and Sudan.

Eight modules contain training plans, activity guides, PowerPoint presentations with lecture notes, videos, and role-playing exercises that simulate real-world peace processes. It is designed for experienced trainers and is structured to foster strong coalitions, to enhance problem-solving abilities, to bolster confidence, and, most significantly, to result in a concrete agenda for advancing women's participation in peace and security.
Inclusive Security: A Curriculum for Women Waging Peace consists of an Introduction and User Guide, a DVD, and modules on:
- Peace Negotiations and Agreements
- Post-Conflict Reconstruction
- Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration
- Transitional Justice
- Legislation Affecting Women
- Democracy and Government
- United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325
- Skills (including advocacy, coalition building, message management, and strategic planning)

Background: In November 2004, in collaboration with International Alert, the Institute for Inclusive Security released Inclusive Security, Sustainable Peace: A Toolkit for Advocacy and Action. Directed to women peace builders and the policy community, that resource outlines the components of peace building from conflict prevention to post-conflict reconstruction, highlighting women's contributions in each phase.
Policymakers and women leaders worldwide have embraced the Toolkit for its comprehensive approach and we have received numerous requests to conduct training based on its material. Inclusive Security: A Curriculum for Women Waging Peace responds to that demand.
