Event Description

Event link: http://www.mepeace.org/events/mepeace-chat-july-10.

We're proud to announce another MEPEACE Chat Workshop, this time on the topic 'Promoting women's approaches to peacebuilding', scheduled to be held this upcoming Sunday, 10 July, at 20.00 Jerusalem time, in our chatroom.

Not only in the Middle East, but virtually everywhere in the world, it appears that women's voices are often not being heard when it comes to peacebuilding and reconciliation processes. While we pretend to have left the dark ages of male dominance behind for good, there is a still a long way to go until we attain full equality between men and women, especially in the field of (international) politics.

 

Women might contribute to peacebuilding and reconciliation in different, often more constructive and holistic ways than men. But even where there's an acceptable level of women's participation, the overarching structures are often dominated by men.

 

This is the reason why it is important to discuss how - especially in the field of peacebuilding - women's participation can actively be promoted and enhanced. In this workshop, both male and female voices - from Israel, Palestine and all over the world - are very welcome.

 

We will ask the following leading questions:

 

How can societies in general, and Middle East society in particular, become more equal when it comes to men's and women's participation in politics and the various sectors of civil society (NGOs,...)?

 

How can divided societies benefit from increased active women's involvement? What could be the implications for conflict resolution?

 

What can mepeace.org do to help ensure women's voices are heard all over the Middle East?

Please note that the event will start on Sunday, 10 July at 20.00 Jerusalem time, in the MEPEACE Chat.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please don't hesitate to contact us at dialogue@mepeace.org.

 

We are looking forward to your participation!
