Turning the Tables: Women’s multiple roles in peace processes

A Conversation with Prominent Women from Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen

Thu, 09 May 2019 10:00-12:00 - Litteraturhuset, Wergelandsveien 29, Oslo

​Despite women’s contributions to preventing and resolving conflicts, they are often excluded from the formal peace process. In the major peace processes of the last two decades, women have only had marginal input and presence.  Furthermore, very few peace processes have inclusion mechanisms. Of the 11 agreements signed in 2017, only three contained gender-sensitive provisions. In this panel discussion prominent women from Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen will provide insight into the main obstacles facing women in peace processes today and explore ways forward in their respective countries.
