Participation of Women in Peace Processes. How can Progress be Accelerated?
An Alumni Insight Event organised in collaboration with the Alumni Community Hub Romania
Since the adoption of the UN Security Council 1325 on Women, Peace and Security almost 20 years ago, governments and organisations raise awareness for a more inclusive approach in peace processes.
Our panellist, the first United States Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women's Issues and expert on Eastern Europe, coordinated foreign policy issues and activities relating to the political, economic and social advancement of women, traveling to nearly sixty countries.
What are the challenges encountered in the still male dominated politico military contexts? What are practical and sustainable approaches for women’s roles in conflict resolution? Have National Action Plans (NAPs) assisted governments with identifying responses to promote a secure environment for women and strengthen resilience to gender-based violence? Where are we at with the implementation of #UNSCR1325?
