Women in War: Stopping Sexual Violence in Conflict

29 May 2019 | Online

Organized By : International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC)

Adopted in April 2019, the UN Resolution 2467 calls for a survivor-centered approach to the prevention of sexual violence against women in conflict, and emboldens efforts to strengthen justice and accountability around the issue. But how can we ensure such non-binding resolutions are actually implemented on the ground? What does a viable action plan to stop violence against women in war look like?

This webinar is organized by our partner the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, and involves the participation of the Global Justice Center, also a GAAMAC partner. It will be held on Wednesday, 29 May 2019 from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm Eastern Time (New York).

The webinar will bring together experts on the subject to discuss the importance of the resolution and the equally important next steps that need to be taken to guarantee that perpetrators are held accountable, that survivors’ needs are met through a holistic range of practical and sustainable support, and that NGOs, activists and other allies can equip women with the training and networks they need to be active leaders on this issue.
