Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - 18:15 to 19:45
Church Center of the UN, 777 1st Avenue, 2nd floor, East 44th Street, New York
Panel Discussion: "A Transformative Women, Peace & Security Agenda: The Need to Challenge Militarism"
This discussion will analyze the gendered nature of peace & security mechanisms by uncovering the linkages between hegemonic masculinities, violence and militarism and its current effects on UNSCR 1325 implementation. A transformative Women, Peace & Security agenda, with active participation of women, is only possible by challenging militarism, promoting an agenda of disarmament, and investing in nonviolent alternatives for conflict resolution.
