"Strengthening Women’s Role in Building and Sustaining Peace" webinar was held
As part of a cycle of events dedicated to women in peacebuilding. the Topchubashov Center organized on 13 December a webinar entitled "Strengthening Women’s Role in Building and Sustaining Peace: UNSC Resolution 1325 in Practice". The webinar was conducted by Sara Formisano, Consultant in Gender and Peace, who provided a framework of women's involvement in peace processes from a legal and historical point of view.
In the second part of the webinar, Ms. Formisano presented her own experience as an international observer in peace missions. Through the experience of South Sudanese women, she identified some key steps that have been crucial in allowing successful outcomes for the inclusion of women in peace negotiations and peacebuilding missions.
Finally, the participants discussed about how these practices could be adapted in the Caucasian context.
