OXPEACE 2020 CONFERENCE: WOMEN, PEACE & SECURITY
16 May 2020 – online
The UN Resolution 1325 (2000) was a key moment for global peace. The world for the first time recognised the key role of women in peace and the need for their equal participation in conflict resolution, peacebuilding, peacekeeping, humanitarian response and in post-conflict reconstruction. This landmark resolution also acknowledged the different experience of war for women.
Marking the 20th anniversary of a path-breaking resolution, this year’s conference is dedicated to the scholarship, policy and practice of women’s inclusion in peacebuilding, peacekeeping and security as well as discussions about gender-based violence and the role of grassroots actors and organisations. Providing a discussion between practitioners, policymakers and academics, OxPeace2020 conference will reflect upon key achievements and failures in the inclusion of women in peace in the past two decades.
The event will be co-hosted by Tim Epple of the Political Settlements Research Programme, and speakers include the PSRP’s Dr Kevin McNicholl and Laura Wise. For the full speaker lineup, visit the conference website.
