Women in Security: a study of barriers and enablers to entering and progressing within the security field in South Sudan

Despite instances of women advancing to senior positions within the security field, by both traditional (second careers following time spent in the military, police or intelligence services) and non-traditional routes, at the global level women are under-represented within the security sector, and this is pronounced in South Sudan.

The purpose of this research study is to present the status of women in the risk and security management profession in South Sudan, identifying barriers and enablers for their entry and advancement within the sector.
