The Women's Network Unidas of Germany, Latin America and the Caribbean and the zivik Funding Programme of the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa) cordially invite you to the event 'The Significance of the Resolution 1325 for Latin America – Experiences from the German-Latin American Women's Network Unidas'. The UN Security Council Resolution 1325 fosters women's participation and the inclusion of a gender perspective in the peacemaking and peacebuilding processes in conflict afflicted contexts. The Resolution is an essential element of the multilateral commitment to the empowerment of women and is explicitly supported within the framework of German foreign policy and the German government's action plan.
The objective of the event is to provide a general overview of the Resolution's content and of its implementation in countries from Latin America and the Caribbean. Additionally, it is intended to establish links between the Resolution and the work undertaken by the participants. Likewise, the event gives participants the opportunity to establish networks and to acquire training on the subject.
The event will be held in Spanish with simultaneous interpretation into English and Portuguese.
The invitation and the programme for the event can be found in English under Downloads.
Registration is possible until September 8 at the latest.
