The Embassy of Liechtenstein (Washington, DC)

The Embassy of Liechtenstein seeks to build an engaged partnership and dialogue with the US not only in Washington but throughout the 50 states at all levels from political and economic to cultural and academic. For more see the Embassy of Liechtenstein's website.

In December 2017 WIIS signed a partnership agreement with Trends Research and Advisory and co-hosted an international conference on The Gender Dimensions of International Peace and Security: Keys to Prosperity and Peace in Abu Dhabi. It also provided gender training to UAE officials. For more see TRENDS Research and Advisory's website.
Casimir Pulaski Foundation (Warsaw, Poland)

U.S. Civil Society Working Group (Washington, DC)
The U.S. Civil Society Working Group on Women, Peace, and Security (CSWG) is a network of experts, NGOs, and academics with years of experience working on issues involving women, war, and peace. Inspired by and building upon the international Women, Peace, and Security agenda, the CSWG informs, promotes, facilitates, and monitors the meaningful implementation of the U.S. National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security and the Women, Peace and Security Act adopted by the U.S. Congress in October 2017.
The CSWG was created in July 2010 to encourage and to support the U.S. Government’s efforts in the adoption of a National Action Plan (NAP) focused on Women, Peace and Security.
The U.S. Institute of Peace acts as the non-partisan, independent secretariat of the working group. Because the U.S. CSWG’s members are primarily non-governmental and academic institutions, the non-partisan nature of USIP has been vital to the group’s success and allowed organizations across the political spectrum to join and participate in the working group. WIIS functions as the fiscal agent of the Group.
For more information on the Group see the USIP website at https://www.usip.org/programs/advancing-women-peace-and-security
