On 2 Dec, join us and LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security for an event discussing how to bridge the gap on female (ex-)combatants in the UNSCR 1325 agenda.


 

A more nuanced understanding of the various ways in which women join and participate in conflicts is necessary to seize opportunities to translate their war-time agency into constructive contributions to conflict transformation, and ultimately to prevent recurring conflict and enable sustainable peace. Together with the LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security, we are organising an online event about how to bridge the gap of female (ex-) combatants in the UNSCR 1325 agenda.

This event will give the floor to female representatives from (former) resistance and liberation movements to share their experiences, aspirations and lessons learnt for effective war-to-peace transitions, and by reflecting with UN1325 experts on the challenges and opportunities of supporting those women’s agency in negotiations and peacebuilding processes.
