Virtual International Conference
Women at the Peace Table
International Conference - June 17, 2023
Hosted by the city of Ypres, Belgium
Around the world, women are at the frontline preventing and resolving conflicts, protecting natural resources and developing sustainable solutions. They are often pioneers, working on the ground, sometimes in the political arena, to find solutions to many global problems.
But women’s force for peace is yet to receive the support and recognition it deserves. Today, women are rarely given a full and participatory place at the negotiating table. We are calling for women to be recognized for the important role they play in conflict prevention, and to be included and heard at all levels of peace negotiations.
The one-day conference will hear from inspirational women who have sat at the peace table including Dr Sima Samar from Afghanistan, Annie Matundu Mbambi from Congo, Reem Alsalem, UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women and girls and Rangita de Silva de Alwi, a CEDAW Committee expert, amongst others.
