Women, Peace and Security in a Post-COVID19 World (Good Relations Week NI)

  • Catherine O'Rourke (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


This year marks the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, which acknowledged the unique impact of conflict on women and girls; and recommended the adaptation of a gendered perspective to understanding peacebuilding and reconstruction after conflicts. Twenty-two years after our own peace agreement was signed, what have we still to learn about the role of women in building a lasting peace? We will discuss also recommendations covered in the Women’s Policy Group’s Feminist Recovery Plan and hear from a panel of experts in peacebuilding.

The theme of this week’s Good Relations Week is “Celebrating Our Journey. Embracing Our Future.”
