Online Dialogue: Faith-Based Peacebuilding: Applying A Gender Perspective
Join the New Tactics in Human Rights and the WPP for an online dialogue on the topic of ""Faith-Based Peacebuilding: Applying a gender perspective", from October 19 to October 25, 2011.
What are some of the major obstacles in relation to gender equality posed by religion? How are women's rights specifically affected in this regard? Which strategies are used by women activists to overcome those obstacles (best practices)? Which positive dimensions do religion and spirituality bring to women's lives? What specific obstacles and advances in terms of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Resolutions can be found in faith-based peacebuilding contexts and initiatives?
This dialogue is an opportunity for those involved in faith-based and interfaith-based peacebuilding and gender work, as well as those interested in it, to discuss these questions and share experiences.
