On 23rd February 2023, the African Union Peace and Security Council (AU PSC) met with civil society organizations, think tanks and faith-based organizations (FBOs) in Juba, South Sudan, to discuss the socio-political, economic and security situation in the country. Prior to the meeting, women-led civil society organisations (CSOs) held a preparatory meeting where they agreed on key issues of concern and the role of women in the implementation of the newly announced Roadmap to a Peaceful and Democratic end of the Transitional Period for peace.

Drawing on the discussions and recommendations put forward by the women-led CSOs during the engagement with the AU PSC, this information brief highlights key priorities for women in South Sudan’s peace and security agenda. It provides actionable recommendations for policymakers on how to strengthen the role of women-led CSOs in promoting gender equality and sustainable peace in South Sudan

CSO representatives nominated to present the identified issues to the Peace and Security Council were from Centre for Inclusive Governance, Peace and Justice, Women’s International Peace Centre and the Young Women’s Christian Association.
