WDSN In Conversation with Miki Jacevic Banner

Next Generation NAPs on Women, Peace and Security: in-conversation with Inclusive Security’s Miki Jacevic

Speakers Miki Jacevic, Lisa Sharland and Trish Bergin

ASPI’s Women in Defence and Security Network (WDSN) invites you to attend an in-conversation with Miki Jacevic to discuss next generation National Action Plans (NAPs) on Women, Peace and Security. 

As work continues to finalise Australia’s second National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security, this event will focus on some of the lessons and best practices that have emerged from the development of National Action Plans around the world, with a focus on what the Australian government and civil society can learn for Australia’s future engagement on Women, Peace and Security.

Miki Jacevic is the Vice-Chair of Inclusive Security, where he leads efforts to promote lasting, systemic change around the world by developing National Action Plans that ensure women’s leadership in peace and security affairs. Mr. Jacevic has been at the forefront of Inclusive Security’s efforts to design and implement high-impact national action plans in countries around the globe, as a tool to help governments make measurable progress on women’s inclusion – and help civil society members to hold them accountable. In the last decade, he has worked directly with close to 40 governments in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America on projects ranging from the development of a first-time plan, as in Afghanistan, Brazil, and Indonesia, to evaluating the impact of a current plan, as in Bosnia, Finland, and Liberia.

This in-conversation discussion will be hosted by ASPI’s Head of International Program, Lisa Sharland, with opening remarks provided by Trish Bergin, First Assistant Secretary, Office for Women, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

A drinks and canape reception will conclude the event.
