…and an opening lightening talk: “WPS: A Transformative, Participatory Agenda?” by Amy Irja-Lea Herr, Ph.D. researcher, University of Bradford
20 years after the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in 2000, we can look back on a great number of policy initiatives and action plans to implement the resolution and the subsequent resolutions on Women, Peace and Security. Moving forward, 2020 should be a year to take stock on what has been done and to continue this endeavour with new momentum as it is not only the 20th anniversary of UNSCR 1325 but also the 25th
anniversary of the UN’s Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing.
From policy makers to international organizations, from research institutes to grassroots initiatives, each stakeholder’s efforts mark a crucial step towards successful implementation of UNSCR 1325 and thus a peaceful world for all. This panel will bring together representatives of organisations working on the implementation of UNSCR 1325, asking about their visions and hopes for the coming 20 years, how to link
the anniversary to efforts in disarmament and what every single person can do to help their work and promote the implementation of UNSCR 1325, creating more sustainable peace worldwide.
