[AWID 2016] Feminist Playbook for Peace
This exciting cross-movement AWID session will be an open and creative space to challenge assumptions of patriarchal inevitability and sustainability, to analyse the linkages between neoliberalism, globalisation, militarism and conflict, and their impact from local to global.
We believe that the answer is in the room, therefore, we will use this space to create an interactive discussion among participants to explore feminist solutions, strengthen alliances, share practical skills, and construct innovative strategies to transform existing structures, policies and approaches, prevent violence, and bring peace.
