cfd – the feminist peace organization, PeaceWomen Across the Globe (PWAG) and the Swiss Platform for Peacebuilding KOFF are pleased to invite you to a conference in the framework of the project “Civil Society Contribution to the Implementation of the Swiss NAP 1325”. The conference is organized in cooperation with the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.

The conference will bring together experts from civil society, academia, and state institutions to discuss the Swiss National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security (NAP 1325). The conference will shed light on its political relevance at the domestic and international level from a variety of perspectives and contexts. At the conference, we will explore the following questions:

  • How can civil society play a role in shaping the debates on Women, Peace and Security to strengthen the link between policy and practice, in Switzerland and beyond? To what extent are women involved in decision-making about peace and security at community, national and international levels?
  • How is the Swiss NAP 1325 reflective of peacebuilding and violence prevention work on the ground? What are the implications of linking Women, Peace and Security and the prevention of violent extremism?

Further information will soon be available.
