Truth or Dare: Learning from 20 years of collective trial and error

Datum: 28-10-2020
Tijd: 10:00- 11:30 EDT/ 15.00-16.30 CET
Locatie: Webinar


This webinar will explore in an open and constructive manner how full and concrete implementation of the WPS agenda can be realized. After 20 years of promoting and talking about WPS, it is time for an honest reflection. What can we all learn from 20 years collective failing and trying again to meaningfully engage women in peace and security processes? What are proven impactful ways and measures of governments, civil society and multilateral organizations that do realize real change? How can we ensure that technique and politics are the two reinforcing sides of the same coin?
