Abstract

The Women, Peace and Security Agenda (WPS) plays a critical role in global peace, stability and prosperity. While the successful implementation of WPS is heavily dependent on the involvement and active participation of the legal community (legislators, scholars, legal practitioners), to date, a large number of legal educators, decision-makers and legal professionals remain unaware of it or dismiss its importance.

This article provides a synthetic overview of WPS and highlights its relevance in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, with a specific emphasis on its implementation in Qatar and lessons derived from the same.

Keywords: Women, Peace, Security, Law, Education, MENA, Qatar
