We are happy to share with you the second issue of the GPS Update this year. This issue is headlined by an interview with PRIO Researcher Hilde Wallacher on her recent PRIO Paper "Engaging Men - The Abatangamuco and Women's Empowerment in Burundi" (also policy brief, accessible here). The paper is based on a study Wallacher recently undertook for CARE in Burundi of the men's movement Abatangamuco, which is working to promote gender equality.

You will also find articles on the Conciliation Resources European Tour, the DPA Guidance for Mediators, a recently published book on the world's women presidents and prime ministers 1960-2010, Aung San Suu Kyi's visit to Oslo, a report from a meeting of the 1325 Research Network, and the regular columns with news and publications.

The PRIO Gender Peace and Security Update is an electronic newsletter launched by PRIO’s Gender Team in 2010 in response to growing interest among the public for information about women, peace and security issues.

The newsletter will keep readers informed of the latest developments both internationally and in Norway in relation to UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) on Women, Peace and Security and subsequent resolutions.
