It's been a few days since International Women's Day on 8 March 2015, but riding on the #MakeItHappen theme, the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD), the Gender and Mine Action Programme (GMAP), and the Small Arms Survey(SAS) are pleased to announce the creation of the Maison de la Paix-based Gender and Diversity Hub with the aim of fostering inclusive peace and security policy, research and practice.

This hub aims to be a knowledge broker on gender and diversity in peace and security, by fostering links between national and international policy makers, experts, researchers, and activists working in the fields of security sector reform, inclusive institutions, humanitarian mine action, small arms and light weapons and armed violence.

Hosting various institutions working in the field of peace and security, the Maison de la Paix provides a unique opportunity to create significant exchanges, networks and synergies between its partners.
