The Way Forward: Syrian Women about Peace and Security

Datum: 02-12-2019
Tijd: 16:30 - 18:00 uur
Locatie: Humanity House, Prinsegracht 8, 2512 GA Den Haag

What does the future of Syria look like? An important question that few people dared to ask during the long years of conflict, atrocious human rights violations and the invasion by the Islamic State. However, recent political and military developments make answering this question more important than ever.

Hivos has been working with Syrian women and peace activists for years to ensure that they play a role in the future of their country. That is why on Monday afternoon, 2 December, we are organizing the debate ‘The Way Forward’, about the Syrian peace process. In the Humanity House in The Hague, Syrian women's rights activists talk to Dutch policymakers and experts.

Sabah Al Hallak, a Syrian activist from a local Syrian organization, addressed the UN Security Council last Friday; her immediate colleagues are in the Netherlands on Monday and would like to talk to you. See the speech of our partner Sabah Al Hallak at the UN Security Council in this link.

Come to the meeting and discover what is really going on in Syria! Read more info here (in Dutch).
