Offer: CALL FOR APPLICATIONS - The Institute for Inclusive Security’s Training of Trainers

The Institute for Inclusive Security uses research, training, and advocacy to promote the inclusion of all stakeholders, particularly women, in peace processes. We work with a global network of well over 1,000 women leaders from more than 40 conflict regions. Our research gives policymakers new strategies to drive inclusion by examining tangible contributions of women peace builders. Our training provides leaders the specialized skills and knowledge to direct local, national, and international peace building. Our advocacy to high-level policymakers promotes change that makes peace processes more broad-based, and thus sustainable.

Inclusive Security is currently accepting applications for admission to a Training of Trainers workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal from November 15-23, 2010. The cutting edge ToT program will expose participants to Inclusive Security: A Curriculum for Women Waging Peace, a unique teaching tool that draws on more than a decade of original research, advocacy, and training by staff and accomplished women peace builders from around the world. The curriculum’s eight highly interactive modules aim to foster strong coalitions, enhance problem solving, bolster confidence, and most significantly, result in a concrete agenda for advancing women’s leadership in peace and security. Over the week-long workshop, participants will become experts in Inclusive Security’s integrated skills and content methodology and be able to adapt the curriculum for use in a variety of settings.

We encourage you to learn more about the curriculum and the Institute’s training program by visiting:

Applicants must meet the following criteria:
• Come from one of the following countries: Afghanistan; India; Nepal; Pakistan; or Sri Lanka
• Speak fluent English
• Have previous experience in training on issues related to gender, peace, or security
• Be willing to replicate Inclusive Security’s training methodology in their organization and with other women groups
• Have good command of interactive and participatory methodologies
• Have strong communication and inter-cultural skills
• Make a commitment to continue working with Inclusive Security to adapt the curriculum and replicate the training skills learned

Hi Kalpana!
If only you had accepted a Ugandan, I would come running!


I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

good security net work

In the struggle for inclusion, a high network of securty becomes apparent. Insiders play significant role in onveiling unturn and tricky games. However, It appears a nation such as Nigeria with high level of women exclusion, bornd out of culture, traditional ethic and religion, the region is visibly excluded, in the list of participating countries. Give them a chance. They need it, they deserve it, they earn it. The world over the population of women outnumber men. Nigeria has 150million or above, out of which an estimated 45per cent are women of productive age, 25per cent able men, less than 10per cent old people while the remaining figure to the youth. coutesy personal alnaysis. Therefore is will be appreciated out of the great number require for this training programme, 2to 4 slot be give Nigerian women, not men, to build up Nigerian network of security. It will be a seed plant.
Thank you.
