Join us at the Peace Forum October 28-30, 2015! This series of events, organized by WILPF, the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders and their many partners, will commemorate the 15th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325. 

Consortium Director Carol Cohn will lead a workshop on Beyond 1325: A Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace on Friday, October 30, 3:00-4:30pm, at the Church Center for the United Nations, East 44th Street, New York, NYThis workshop will provide a space to radically rethink, broaden and deepen the current Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda. We will ask: If we aim to be truly transformative in creating a more just, gender-equitable and sustainable peace, what is the WPS agenda missing, and how can we bring it in?   

Key questions we will examine in the workshop include: 

  • Why are areas typically outside the WPS Agenda – such as the rebuilding of infrastructure, or public finance, or extractive industries and land grabbing, or dealing with international financial institutions – so crucial for us to address?
  • What are some expectable post-war issues and dynamics that impede the realization of gender equality, even when it is written into constitutional provisions?
  • How might analysis of the root causes of conflict and inequality transform the agenda for peace negotiations?
     

Registration is highly encouraged, RSVP here: Peace Forum Day 2 Workshops. Hope to see you there!
