Disarmament – Feminist Perspectives on Peace Policies and Security

Gemeinsam mit ihrem weltweiten Netzwerk von Aktivistinnen startet FriedensFrauen Weltweit eine Workshopreihe zu feministischer Friedenspolitik, Abrüstung und Entmilitarisierung. Der erste findet am 6. März 2021 statt. (Informationen und Veranstaltung auf Englisch.)

At the online workshop “The responsibilities of European states” on 6 March, experts will discuss the background, the logic and the consequences of selected European states’ pursuit of a militarized security policy with an intergenerational postcolonial perspective.

European states share the responsibility for the world’s armed conflicts through their arms industries, their trade in war material, the militarized control of civilian spaces and their high-tech regulation of borders. Yet, too often they shirk accountability for the consequences of armed conflicts for civilian populations.

This series of workshops on disarmament provides the space for feminist peace activists to share their experiences and points of view and to discuss how to achieve a gender-just peace and gender-sensitive security concepts.

In a second webinar women from beyond Europe’s borders talk about the daily effect military interventions have on their lives.

A third workshop and an event will follow this year. Please visit the Facebook page „PeaceWomen Across the Globe“ and website for further information.
