The Workshop is in line with the new NATO’s approach of the 2022 Strategic Concept when, in the Madrid Summit Declaration, issued by NATO Heads of State and Government participating in the meeting of the North Atlantic Council, it was declared that a robust Women, Peace and Security agenda, incorporating gender perspectives, is to be advanced across NATO.

NATO believes that stability, security, and peace can only flourish when women are empowered to work together with their governments, own communities and internationally in diplomacy, conflict prevention and mediation.

The NSD-S HUB is a framework to better understand challenges and threats emanating from Africa and the Middle East and improve NATO’s awareness and understanding of the opportunities and challenges from those regions, while contributing to the overall coordination of NATO’s activities and efforts.
