Women’s Freedom, Peace and Dignity in Palestine

Women’s Freedom, Peace and Dignity in Palestine UNSCR 1325 for Accountability: An International Conference, Convened by the YWCA of Palestine

The YWCA of Palestine, with the support of the World YWCA and in coordination with the Ministry of Women’s Affairs- State of Palestine/ UNSCR 1325 National Forum, the General Union for Palestinian Women/ UNSCR 1325 Coalition, the Violence Against Women Forum (AL MUNTADA), and KAIROS Palestine are organizing this International Conference.

You are invited to support Peace and Justice in Palestine, and specifically Palestinian women in their struggle and commitment for Peace and Justice.  You can attend the Conference only, or come earlier and join the Witness Visit from 26 – 28 September.

In Palestine, women have always been politically active and they practised their rights to assemble and participate in political activities, however, this legal right continues to be severely constrained by the long-term Israeli Occupation.  The YWCA and local partners continue to be concerned about the situation of women, and since UNSCR 1325 recognizes the right/need for women’s participation in peace, protection, and prevention from violence; we believe this is the time to implement this resolution.

The conference aspires to bring together internationally and locally renowned and prominent speakers, organizations, partners, and experts who will definitely contribute to the success of this conference.

Early Registration Date is: June 1st, 2014
