The lead story in this issue of the GPS Update is about the launch of a new PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security. In this issue you can also read about the most recent conference of the Missing Peace Initiatives which dealt with accountability for conflict-related sexual violence. As usual, the GPS Update also gives you an update on relevant seminars, reports and policy briefs, as well as a list of publications which might be of interest to our readership.
The PRIO Gender, Peace and Security Update is an electronic newsletter launched by PRIO's Gender Research Group in response to growing interest among the public for information about women, peace and security issues. The newsletter will keep readers informed of the latest developments both internationally and in Norway in relation to UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) on Women, Peace and Security and subsequent resolutions. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have views to share or ideas/suggestions for forthcoming issues.
