  • Issues,
  • Experience, and
  • Sectors.

• WIIS Sweden encourages synergy at various levels of theory, practice and policy.

• WIIS Sweden encourages the active civic engagement of women and men who understand the importance of inclusive and diverse participation in international peace, security and defence.

• WIIS Sweden advocates for women’s inclusion and leadership in the fields of international peace, security and defence, but does not lobby on specific pieces of legislation.
