Cohn, Carol. 2020. “The Women, Peace and Security Agenda and the Climate Crisis: Inextricable Links.” Presentation at the Nordic Africa Institute, Uppsala, Sweden, March 9, 2020.

Topics
Environment, Climate Change, Peacebuilding, UN Security Council Resolutions on WPS
If the goals of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda are understood as ensuring women’s human security, ending and preventing wars, and building gender-just, sustainable peace, confronting the climate crisis must be understood as both practically and conceptually inextricable from the realization of the WPS agenda. This talk was presented as part of the research seminar, African Perspectives on the 20th Anniversary of UNSCR 325 - Gendering Peace and Security, The Nordic Africa Institute, Uppsala, Sweden, March 9-10, 2020 and builds on a shorter exploration of these arguments created for the NGO Working Group on Women Peace and Security: Cohn, Carol. 2020. “Notes on Why Confronting the Climate Crisis Must be Integral to WPS.” Unpublished internal report for the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security, February 9, 2020.

Cohn, Carol and Claire Duncanson. 2015. Toward a Transformative Women, Peace and Security Agenda. Boston: Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights.

Topics
Environment, Climate Change, Extractive Industries, Feminisms, Feminist Political Economy, Infrastructure, UN Security Council Resolutions on WPS
In June 2015, fifteen feminist scholars, policy makers and practitioners met in Oslo, Norway, for the augural workshop of the Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights’ project to create a “Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace.” The purpose of the FRSP’s first workshop was to try to identify the most important transnational actors, processes and dynamics that have shaping effects in post-war countries, and to begin to think-through what women, and men, who seek gender-just, sustainable peace need to know about them, so that if the chain of “ifs” (if we achieve women’s political participation, if these women get into positions where they have some amount of influence, if they want to use that influence for the purpose of transforming unequal gendered power relations) were to become a chain of actual events, they would be better able to achieve their goals.

Cohn, Carol, and Claire Duncanson. 2017. What Kind of Growth? Economies that Work for Women in Post-War Settings. Boston: Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights.

Development, Economies, Feminist Economics, Feminisms, Feminist Political Economy
On July 17 & 18, 2017, Carol Cohn (Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights) and Claire Duncanson (University of Edinburgh) convened a workshop entitled, “What Kind of Growth? Economies that Work for Women in Post-War Settings.” Its focus was post-war economic reconstruction and its gendered impacts. The aims were to:delineate the gendered economic challenges that post-war contexts generate;outline the gendered impacts of current approaches to post-war reconstruction;consider the extent to which feminist alternatives to neoclassical economic models offer the potential for generating solutions.
