Understanding Women in the Process of Peace

Since the United Nations passed Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security in 2000, it has gradually been acknowledged that women should have a powerful and decisive role in conflict prevention and conflict resolution. This conference focuses on women as agents of peace across the five key stages of the peace process: conflict prevention, peacekeeping, peacebuilding, conflict resolution and the post-conflict environment.

The central questions this conference asks are: What is the contribution of women role as agents of peace in the UN system? What innovations exist that can help quantitatively and qualitatively improve female participation in the process of peace? How can the UN incentivize nations to improve gender equity in their contributions to peace processes?

The keynote speaker for this event is Séverine Autesserre (Columbia University). Some funding is available for travel and accommodation expenses.
