10/11/2020 – Women, Peace & Security: A Feminist Agenda

On November 10th, the ICGBV held an online panel discussion on Women, Peace & Security: A Feminist Agenda. The recording is available above.

Following on from the 20th anniversary of the Women, Peace & Security 1325 Security Council resolution, this webinar explored the WPS agenda from a feminist perspective. In the discussion, panelists shared the ways in which they feel that a feminist agenda might more fundamentally reshape the peace and security sphere as we look ahead to future advancements in WPS, and reflect on successes from 20 years of this agenda.
