Welcome to issue 14 of the GPS newsletter.

This month we're pleased to announce the publication of a new policy brief examining misogyny, violent extremism and the implications for PVE. You can read the full brief on our website here.

In July, we welcomed the first cohort for the Graduate Certificate of Gender, Peace and Security. The GPS Grad Cert will enable leaders to better integrate gender perspectives into peace and security policymaking at all levels – local, national, regional and global. The next intensive unit will take place on 4-8 November in Melbourne. You can find out more about the Certificate here.

In September Professor Jacqui True and Melissa Johnston travelled to Warwick, UK for the launch of a new project, partnering with Warwick Interdisciplinary Research Centre for International Development, on "Inclusive economies and enduring peace: the role of social reproduction." You can read more about the research here.

Next month, we're delighted to be co-hosting with the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), this year's Women in Defence and Security Network (WDSN) Speed Mentoring Event in Melbourne. You can register for this free event here.
