NGO CSW66 Forum Parallel Event: (De)Militarisation, Gender and Climate Justice
March 23, 2022 at 3PM CET/ 10AM EDT!
(De)Militarization, Gender and Climate Justice: Connecting the Dots
What role do militaries and militarization play in creating the climate crisis? What are the links between militarization and environmental injustice? And why is it crucial to understand gender in order to connect the dots?
Join us for a special panel and workshop at the NGO #csw66 Forum to explore these questions, and to explore ways that demilitarization could serve multiple goals: climate justice, gender justice, and inclusive and sustainable peace.
This Parallel Event, organized by WILPF Germany and the Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights, will start with a 30-minute panel featuring:
- Neta Crawford, Professor and Chair, Department of Political Science, Boston University
- Claire Duncanson, Senior Research Scholar, Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights, and member of the WILPF Academic Network
- Carol Cohn, Director, Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights, and member of the WILPF Academic Network
After the panel, participants will collaborate in small working groups, developing ways that demilitarization could be linked to finding sustainable and gender-just solutions to the climate crisis. This will be followed by a plenary where they present their results.
