Caring for Carers in International Organisations: Ensuring Inclusive, Responsive and Effective Peacebuilding

1 February, 2022



This Policy Brief builds on a survey carried out in 2020 by Monash University and the University of Warwick, on ‘Building Success in Development and Peacebuilding by Caring for the Carers’. The complementarity of WICID findings with those of pilot MOWIP reports strengthens an overarching policy argument to address caring responsibilities as part of the Women, Peace and Security agenda.

This Policy Brief focuses on what international organisations engaged in peacebuilding can do to care for carers working within these organisations. As such, it should be read in conjunction with Policy Brief 1A, The Duty of Caring, which lays out corresponding findings from MOWIP assessments with a focus on security sector institutions at the national level.
