Welcome to the United Nations

UN Women in Ceasefire Negotiations Course


Call for Applications – UN DPPA Women in Ceasefire Negotiations Course from 3 September to 6 November 2024

"Ceasefires are not only about stopping the fighting between belligerents. Effective ceasefire agreements protect civilians and enable humanitarian access to vulnerable populations. From a political standpoint, ceasefires are a major opportunity to set the foundation for inclusive and comprehensive peace talks." - Rosemary A. DiCarlo, Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs

Women are systematically underrepresented as direct participants in ceasefire negotiations and implementation. The DPPA Women in Ceasefire Negotiations Course seeks to address this by honing the technical skills of women peacemakers and negotiators to enable their meaningful participation in ceasefire and security arrangement negotiations and implementation. The course targets mid- and senior level women mediators, women negotiators from conflict parties, and women peacemakers.

Interested women candidates are invited to apply via this Application Form by 31 May 2024.
