Geneva Peaceweek Event
This session is cohosted by the Geneva Center for Security Policy (GCSP)/ the Maison de la Paix Gender and Diversity Hub, The Global Reset, and Women in International Security (WIIS) Switzerland.
Twenty years since the landmark United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, the Women Peace and Security Agenda needs to move from policy to action. Resetting international cooperation and rebuilding trust and international cooperation will not be possible without more meaningful participation of women in the international system’s decision-making structures. Through a creative and immersive workshop the event aims to engage our diverse community of women and allies, to tap into our collective intelligence and explore:
How to navigate and improve the current system for female leaders in peacebuilding and security and overcome gendered barriers;
How to change peace and security institutions and design a more inclusive, sustainable, and equitable future.
In small groups you will have the opportunity to form connections with the GPW community, exchange experiences, and brainstorm innovative strategies for women’s inclusion in international peace and security.

Overcoming challenges to Women's Participation in Sustainable Peacebuilding
Formal resistance and implicit bias by those who hold power in politics, institutions and communities are key obstacles to women’s meaningful participation at all levels of society. Do we approach this as a problem to solve or accept that these tensions will persist?
Using the case study of Afghanistan, participants analysed the tensions that persist in peacebuilding, particularly around holding power and sharing power. We broke out into 3 groups to question our mindsets and theories of change, and share experiences within our community of experts, practitioners and policy makers. Collectively, we identified some concrete steps to overcome resistance and work towards more sustainable peace and gender equality. Attendance for this workshop was limited to 30 people. This event was in English.

Participants were presented with case scenarios and will have the opportunity to apply practical tools for gender analysis/mainstreaming in interactive break-out sessions.
The workshop focused on the cross-cutting nature of gender and peace and explored synergies between different areas of expertise of several organisations working in the human security sector in Geneva.

Including men and boys with a disability in Afghanistan | How does life change after stepping on a landmine?
Afghanistan is one of the countries most affected by landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW). In 2016, men and boys made up 85% of recorded casualties. Victims of mines/ERW suffer the consequences of their injuries in gendered ways, including in their access to care and education, their mobility, and their social and economic opportunities.
How do men and boys adapt to the new physical conditions and how does this impact their
surroundings? How can victim assistance be more inclusive of men and boys in these contexts?
