Organized By : World Federalist Movement - Institute for Global Policy

The 2000 UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) and subsequent resolutions within the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) framework have been a cornerstone of women’s political advocacy in the peace-building processes in Colombia and Mali on both local and national levels. This event will explore how civil society in both Colombia and Mali has utilized 1325-based advocacy effectively, as well as the challenges they have faced. Twenty years after Resolution 1325 was adopted, how do the experiences of Malian and Colombian women’s rights advocates in using these frameworks showcase the major strengths and weaknesses of the WPS agenda? How can these experiences inform the WPS framework’s future development?

This event will feature:

Luz Piedad Caicedo, Deputy Director of Corporación Humanas Colombia

Mama Koité Doumbia, President of MUSONET-Mali (Réseau MUSONET)

The event is organized by the World Federalist Movement Institute for Global Policy, with support from the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad).
