Event description
Ireland and WPS on the UN Security Council. Panel discussion, Wednesday, 30th June, 2pm.

About this event

Ireland has made WPS a key focus of its foreign policy and its tenure on the UN Security Council, including through taking up the role of co-chairing the Independent Experts’ Group (IEG) on WPS. It does so at a time when the dynamics on the Council present clear obstacles to advancing, and protecting progress on, the WPS agenda. This discussion will explore opportunities for Ireland to influence, advance and strengthen the Women, Peace and Security Agenda through a discussion of key country contexts and themes.

Speakers include:

  • Áine Hearns, Director of the Conflict Resolution Unit, Ireland’s Dept of Foreign Affairs;
  • Madeleine Rees, Secretary-General of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF);
  • Horia Mosadiq, Afghan human rights activist and Executive Director, Conflict Analysis Network; and
  • Assitan Diallo, President of the Association des Femmes Africaines pour la Recherche et le Développement (AFARD) in Mali.

Dr Salome Mbugua, Commissioner with the Irish Human Rights & Equality Commission and founder of AkiDwA, will chair the event.

The event is organised by the Irish Peace and Conflict Network. For more information, please contact IrishPCN@gmail.com
