Welcome To WIIS-Romania

WIIS-Romania seeks to provide valuable services and resources to build a national and international network of women in the field of security, increasing the number and the visibility of women in this area.

WIIS-Romania intends to inspire active women to express their own points of view in fields related to security (in a broad sense, traditional security and human security, inclusive a range of disciplines such as Conflict Resolution and Human Rights). In the same time, WIIS-Romania encourages the active civic engagement of women who understand the importance of inclusive and diverse participation in peace and security.

Our Mission Statement

Women In International Security is the premier global network of women and men dedicated to advancing the leadership and professional development of women in international peace and security.



 

Our Values and Core Characteristics

WIIS defines international security broadly, inclusive of a range of disciplines such as conflict resolution and human rights, but focuses on the intersection or nexus of these issues with security.

 

WIIS bridges the divides among:

  •           issues (traditional security and human security);
  •           generations of women;
  •           and sectors (academic, practitioner, policymaker).
 

WIIS educates and inspires women at all stages of their careers - the multigenerational aspect of its network is one of WIIS's greatest strengths.

 

WIIS builds local, national and global communities that empower women in many different countries.

WIIS encourages the active civic engagement of women and men who understand the importance of inclusive and diverse participation in peace and security.

WIIS is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that advocates for women's inclusion and leadership in the peace and security fields, but does not lobby on specific pieces of legislation.

WIIS provides valuable services and resources to build a global network of women in these fields, and increases the number and visibility of women across sectors and around the world.
