(De)Militarization, Gender and Climate Justice: Connecting the Dots

Date: 
Wednesday, March 23, 2022 - 10:00 to 12:00
Location: 
Online via Zoom
Description: 
This parallel event hosted by the Consortium of Gender, Security and Human Rights and WILPF Germany at the NGO #CSW66 Forum explored key questions about demilitarization, gender justice, and sustainable peace. The discussion examined the connections between militarization, the climate crisis and environmental injustice and also explored why it is crucial to understand gender in order to connect the dots. 
 
The event began with a 30-minute panel featuring:
 
- Neta Crawford, Professor and Chair, Department of Political Science, Boston University
 
- Claire Duncanson, Senior Research Scholar, Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights, and member of the WILPF Academic Network
 
- Carol Cohn, Director, Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights, and member of the WILPF Academic Network
 
Following the panel, participants from around the world collaborated in small working groups, developing ways that demilitarization could be linked to finding sustainable and gender-just solutions to the climate crisis. They then presented their results in a plenary. To learn more about demilitarization, the climate crisis and gender justice, panelists also provided a list of selected projects and publications.
