Las mujeres en la implementación del acuerdo de paz de Colombia

A un año de la firma del acuerdo final de paz entre el gobierno colombiano y la guerrilla de las FARC-EP, el proceso de paz más exitoso de Colombia ha comenzado la implementación de lo pactado. Las mujeres formaron parte integral del proceso de negociación como plenipotenciarias, como integrantes de la subcomisión de género y como parte activa de la sociedad civil. El proceso de paz en Colombia ha sido reconocido mundialmente como ejemplar dada la participación de mujeres y las cláusulas logradas en el acuerdo final, sin embargo es necesario ver el progreso de estos logros en la implementación del acuerdo y el seguimiento al proceso en general. Este webinar busca compartir información sobre la fase actual de la implementación del acuerdo de paz en Colombia desde un punto de vista feminista-pacifista.

Responsabilidad Corporativa Hacia los Derechos Humanos

El TTIP y los acuerdos de la OMC ofrecen un marco legal para que las corporaciones operen con tranquilidad entre diferentes paises. Sin embargo, estas normas no garantizan acceso a la justicia por violaciones de derechos humanos. ¿Cómo podemos desafiar el poder de las corporaciones y por qué las WILPFeras deben trabajar en esto?

Este webinar, organizado por el Programa de Derechos Humanos de LIMPAL (WILPF) el 13 de mayo de 2016, habla sobre los derechos humanos y la responsabilidad de las empresas.

Human Rights and Corporate Accountability

However, these norms do not guarantee accountability for corporations when they violate human rights. How can we challenge corporate power and why should WILPFers engage?

International Humanitarian Law, International Human Rights Law and Complementarity

The webinar is about the intersection of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and International Human Rights Law (IHRL). Feminist critiques of IHL acknowledge that with IHL, the experience of women in armed conflict is marginalised or absent from the legal framework. Does IHRL assist in filling the gaps?

  • Barbara O’Dwyer, President of WILPF Australia

Feminist Foreign Policy

The Swedish Foreign Minister, Margot Wallström’s, decision in 2015 on not prolong Sweden’s military cooperation deal with Saudi Arabia sparked a heated discussion about foreign policy, showing that the political choices of Western countries might either promote human rights (and the rights of women in particular) or facilitate armed conflicts (and the spread of gender-based violence). What does a feminist foreign policy look like?

Expert Panel:

  • Annick Wibben, WILPF Academic Network
  • Madeleine Rees, WILPF Secretary General
  • Ghazal Rahmanpanah, WILPF’s Women, Peace and Security programme
