Peacebuilding-Project: Network Activities
The project is intended to strengthen these networks that have been dealing with the issues of the participation of women in the peace and security sector and (sexualised) gender-based violence for years.Within the network meetings the participants – consisting of women from the medica mondiale/PAIF offices and women from the network – will discuss on how to realise women’s rights and the implementation of UNSC Resolution 1325 and 1820 in their countries. Furthermore, they will plan their participation in several advocacy activities and will choose the topics which will be discussed in meetings with politicians and political institutions. The first international network meeting took place in Kosovo in July 2009. In June 2011, the participants from Afghanistan, Liberia and DR Congo will meet again to exchange views and experiences, this time in Cologne.
