Welcome to this mini-series ‘Tea at 1325’ to explore the Women Peace and Security Agenda (WPS), twenty years after the United Nations Security Council passed the landmark resolution, 1325. The series is hosted by Lisa Larson, Women Peace and Security Fellow. Lisa has the pleasure of speaking with a number of experts who have been advancing the agenda within international organisations and civil society, as well as youth.
Lisa has extensive experience in leadership development and is participating in GCSP activities and research to contribute to the empowerment of women and more inclusive peace, security and international cooperation. Through these interviews, she introduces different personal experiences and perspectives on the WPS agenda, from peacekeeping operations to peace movements, and asks experts ‘what next?’ at a time when we know we cannot wait for change. We hope that you will find the series informative and inspiring. Mr Serge Stroobants is the Director of Operations for Europe & MENA, Institute for Economics and Peace
