Background The Afghan Women Peace and Security Research Institute (RIWPS):
Following the first Consultative Peace Jirga in Afghanistan during 2010, based on an increased need for a specific organization working on issues of Women Peace & Security, RIWPS was founded by Afghan women activists. However, RIWPS officially got registered with the Ministry of Economy during the first quarter of 2012.

RIWPS – Afghanistan is working closely with the High Peace Council focusing on women’s meaningful participation in the peace processes as well as with the local organizations and activists for building community based inclusive peace. Other local stakeholders include the Women’s Affairs Commission of the Parliament (both houses), the Afghan Women’s Coalition, the Shelter’s Network in Afghanistan.
