Women and War Conference, Nov. 3-5, Washington, DC

In October 2000, the United Nations Security Council passed landmark Resolution 1325 on women, peace, and security, which linked women’s experiences of conflict to the international peace and security agenda, acknowledging their peacemaking roles as well as the disproportionate impact of violent conflict on women. Ten years later the U.S. Institute of Peace will co-host a three-day conference celebrating the landmark resolution. With an eye toward translating the promise of Resolution 1325 into concrete action, this event will focus on the varied experiences of women during wartime and how to make sustained progress toward greater global peace and security.

The event will feature an extraordinary coalition of national and international participants, including UN and US government officials, the international diplomatic communities, military personnel, academics, civil society leaders, and practitioners in the fields of security, development, and conflict resolution.
