This online report launch is a joint initiative by the Center for Security Studies (CSS) at ETH Zurich, the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice (Kroc IPJ), the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) and the European Institute of Peace.
DATE: 8 DECEMBER 2021
TIME: 15:00 – 16:00 CET
To date, despite relative progress in women’s participation in peace processes, very little is known about the experiences of women mediators and negotiators in “Track One” peace processes. In an attempt to address this knowledge gap, the Center for Security Studies (CSS) at ETH Zurich, the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice (Kroc IPJ), the European Institute of Peace, and the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) launched a joint initiative to learn from and with women negotiators and mediators.
Join Ugandan negotiator Ms. Betty Bigombe, Australian-Cambodian mediator Dr. Emma Leslie and the Institute’s Senior Advisor Roxana Cristescu on 8 December between 15:00 – 16:00 CET for this online report launch addressing the experiences, challenges and strategies of women mediators & negotiators in Track 1 peace processes.
The report highlights key findings from the three workshops that took place between 2019 and 2020 as part of the initiative. It is structured around six key insights from the workshops, with illustrative case examples from Syria, Kenya, Kosovo, Mozambique, and the Philippines. The report concludes with an exploration of what “peace leadership” could and should mean in negotiations and mediation in the 21st century.
