Webinar: National Action Plans on Women, Peace and Security

What: Webinar

When: 19 January, 21-23 p.m. CET

Where: Online

Description: 

What are National Action Plans and how can they foster the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda in the African context?

The webinar will look into the progress in implementing the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 through National Action Plans, using the case studies of the DRC, Nigeria and Cameroon.

Some activists and policymakers see National Action Plans as useful tools for the localization of the Women, Peace and Security agenda at the national and community levels, while for others the plans are only “fairy-tale compliance.” After the discussion on opportunities and risks National Action Plans may create, WILPF grassroots activists will share their first-hand experiences from the DRC and Nigeria, where the plans have already been adopted, and Cameroon where the plan is in preparation.

Speakers:

Prof. Aisling Swaine, WILPF Academic Network

Dr. Abigail Ruane, WILPF Women, Peace and Security Programme

Joy Onyesoh (Nigeria), Sylvie Ndongmo (Cameroon), and Annie Mbambi (DRC)

Hosted by WILPF Academic Network.
