    Ireland and Women, Peace and Security on the UN Security Council

    Ireland and Women, Peace and Security on the UN Security Council

    Ireland has made WPS a key focus of its foreign policy and its tenure on the UN Security Council, including through taking up the role of co-chairing the Independent Experts’ Group (IEG) on WPS. It does so at a time when the dynamics on the Council present clear obstacles to advancing, and protecting progress on, the WPS agenda. This discussion explored opportunities for Ireland to influence, advance and strengthen the Women, Peace and Security Agenda through a discussion of key country contexts and themes. Speakers included: Áine Hearns, Director of the Conflict Resolution Unit, Ireland’s Dept of Foreign Affairs; Madeleine Rees, Secretary-General of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF); Horia Mosadiq, Afghan human rights activist and Executive Director, Conflict Analysis Network; Assitan Diallo, President of the Association des Femmes Africaines pour la Recherche et le Développement (AFARD) in Mali; and Linda Cabrera, Director of Sisma Mujer, Colombia. Dr Salome Mbugua, Commissioner with the Irish Human Rights & Equality Commission and founder of AkiDwA, will chair the event. The event was organised by the Irish Peace and Conflict Network, which includes the TJI.
