Women, Powerful agents of Peace and Security?


In 2000, the Security Council of the UN adopted resolution 1325 to call on UN member states to put women’s interests at the heart of their peace and security agenda. Instead of women being seen as victims, they should be recognized as strong actors and leaders in peace, reconciliation and reconstruction processes. In this both women and men have an important role to play.

Join us, as we talk about the roles that women have to play in fostering peace and security. Let us explore new solutions and viewpoints? What if we were to look at the causes and with different eyes? Could it set peace and justice in motion? In this interactive event, our speakers challenge our mindset from within and beyond the field of peace and justice to contribute to the discussion.
