Racial Discrimination in Sweden : Driving Change Through the Use of Law
Sweden is usually not the first country that comes to mind when one thinks of racism or racial discrimination. Yet, as in the United States and many European countries, it has been part of its history and it is still an issue today. We sat down with Paul Lappalainen, American lawyer and member of the European Network of experts in gender equality and non-discrimination to discuss the Swedish legal framework and how it could be used by anti-discrimination organisations and civil society to become an effective drive for change.
The 1325 United Nations Resolution on Women, Peace and Security : Achievements & Challenges
We sat down with Petra Tötterman Andorff, the Secretary General of the Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation, to discuss the United Nations 1325 Resolution on Women, Peace & Security.
This landmark resolution was adopted in 2000 and drew three main objectives:
- To ensure women participation in peace agreement processes
- The protection of women and girls against conflict related sexual violence
- The integration of gender perspectives into peace agreements.
Twenty-one years later, we discussed its achievements but also the challenges faced today. As the Secretary General of the organisation, Petra also offered us an overview of the role of the Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation in its implementation.
Why peace agreements tend to be more sustainable when women are involved in their adoption?
Why women still tend to be excluded from the signatories?
How to ensure a better implementation of the 1325 Resolution?
These are questions we are discussing in this podcast. Enjoy!
