Women, Peacebuilding, and Advancing the Rule of Law

Women, Peacebuilding, and Advancing the Rule of Law

*Attendance fee is required: free for ASIL and participating sponsor organization members; please indicate your organization affiliation when registering. $15 for nonmembers.

Women are an important part of the peacebuilding equation. Too often they are excluded or marginalized in the peace process. Limiting or excluding women in the peacebuilding process not only leaves a critical resource untapped but also hinders a society's recovery. Women can be agents of change, advocates for justice and peace, and leaders in reestablishing rule of law.

Panelists at this event will discuss the critical role of women in peacebuilding as well as comment on the recent UN Security Council report on Resolution 1820 on women, peace, and security.
