  • Afghan Women Police: Tomorrow’s force for inclusive security

    While today around 3,200 women serve in the Afghan police force, it is realistically still tomorrow’s force for inclusive security. The number of women is far behind the target of 5,000 places that are currently reserved for women in the staffing plan. Afghan women only represent around 2.5 percent of the police force and face an uphill battle against institutional and societal barriers. The police force and the Ministry of Interior still have neither an inclusive institutional culture nor a critical mass of women that can help normalize their inclusion and maximize their added value. The Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda has so far not been able to act as a catalyst for change and more meaningful participation in the security sector.
