Description: 

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.
