Beyond 1325: Changing the Table
When Thursday May 31, 2012 @ 2:30 PM (559 days ago)
Where Seminary, Martin Chapel
Duration 2 hours 30 minutes
This symposium, facilitated by the Women’s Peacebuilding Leadership Program, will examine the role of women in post-conflict zones and political systems. Many times, women and minorities are excluded from leadership roles and decision-making processes, and U.N. Security Council resolution 1325, adopted in 2000, attempted to address this by affirming the importance of women in peace negotiations, humanitarian planning, peacekeeping operations and governance. The resolution has helped shape policies and programs and provided women with new paths for participation in negotiation and peacebuilding, but much work remains.
A five-person panel will explore how to change who is at the table where decisions are made and new paths are forged. What are the opportunities and challenges facing women and men concerned with bringing peace, stability and justice to their societies? How does the table need to change to make this happen? What are the next steps?
The symposium will include time for questions and small-group discussion. It is free and open to the public.
