Enhancing Accountability for Women, Peace and Security

April 5, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security, The Global Gender Program of GW’s Elliott School of International Affairs, The Transitional Justice Institute at Ulster University, and UN Women

cordially invite you to a roundtable on

“Enhancing Accountability for Women, Peace and Security: Maximizing Synergies between CEDAW and the WPS Resolutions”

with

Dr. Catherine O’Rourke, Senior Lecturer in Human Rights and International Law, Transitional Justice Institute, Ulster University

Dr. Aisling Swaine, Associate Professor of Practice of International Affairs, Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University

Ms. Alison Davidian, Transitional Justice Policy Specialist, Peace and Security Team, UN Women

 

One of the key conclusions of the Security Council commissioned 2015 Global Study on Resolution 1325 was the need for improved synergies between international human rights mechanisms and the women, peace and security agenda.  With the adoption of General Recommendation No. 30 (2013) on the rights of women in conflict-prevention, conflict and post-conflict peacebuilding, the CEDAW Committee has provided practical guidance and a normative framework to that end. The seminar discusses how the CEDAW and WPS frameworks can be used to strengthen and reinforce each other and advance overall accountability for implementation of both sets of instruments.
