SUSTAINING FEMINIST PEACE BY ENABLING WOMEN’S MOVEMENTS FOR JUSTICE: LESSONS LEARNED FROM COLOMBIA, NIGERIA AND YEMEN
What: This side event will provide a forum for women-led civil society to identify inter-linkages between the Sustaining Peace and WPS Agendas and share recommendations on what a Sustaining Feminist Peace Agenda would look like. The panellists and participants will share their views on what UN, member states, and donors can do to accelerate action that addresses root causes for prevention, justice and peace and on how to hold governments accountable for the gaps in the implementation of the WPS Agenda. It will also launch WILPF’s 2017 Security Council WPS Scorecard policy brief and share resources on a feminist security agenda for peace.
