UN Women Ethiopia Country Office and the Peace and Development Centre welcome submissions of abstracts to be presented at a workshop under the theme The Women, Peace and Security Agenda: Enhanced Participation of Women in Peace and Conflict Resolution in Ethiopia. The workshop will tentatively take place from 22 to 23 November 2021 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The workshop aims to create a platform for key stakeholders to discuss and gain knowledge on the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. Its target audience are representatives of government entities, international and local CSOs and women’s groups and the media. The workshop’s objective is to increase the participants’ understanding of UNSCR 1325 and the WPS agenda; raise awareness of the importance of having a WPS National Action Plan (NAP) in place; and to ensure that the participants have increased awareness regarding the criticality of women’s participation as effective leaders and peacebuilders for lasting peace. The workshop serves as a platform for different actors to envision a future where women and men equally participate in and are served by peacekeeping, peacebuilding, conflict prevention and recovery efforts and to identify their respective roles in implementing the WPS agenda.
Researchers, policy makers and practitioners on peace, security, conflict resolution, gender equality and women’s empowerment are welcome to submit original research or discussion papers or case studies to the workshop.
The abstracts of research papers, discussion papers or academic case studies are expected to focus on one or more of the following themes and sub-themes. Papers with a focus on Ethiopia are highly encouraged.
