    The Power of Advocacy to Transform Gender Norms in Yemen (S06E03)

    The Power of Advocacy to Transform Gender Norms in Yemen (S06E03)

    In Yemen, the violence of the war tearing the country apart since late 2014 has amplified the already deeply entrenched gender inequalities. Child marriage and domestic violence cases are recorded in climbing numbers. In spite of this, women on the ground are showing us the power of advocacy to challenge discriminatory practices in their country. Alaa Al-Eryani is a prominent Yemeni gender equality activist, raising awareness on the need for more equal rights and opportunities for women in Yemen.

    In this episode, Clémentine Dupont from UNOY sits down with Alaa Al-Eryani, the founder of the first Yemeni feminist online platform, to discuss the power of feminist advocacy to challenge norms, the intersections of gender with peace and security issues, and the contributions of art to peace.

    Climate Change, Gender & Peacebuilding: Risk, Resistance & Resilience (S06E02)

    Climate Change, Gender & Peacebuilding: Risk, Resistance & Resilience (S06E02)

    While gender and climate change are often viewed as independent fields with isolated challenges, the relationship between them are in fact more deeply intertwined than ever before. With the acceleration of climate change, the rise of climate-induced conflict and environmental insecurity have also begun to rear their heads. It’s no secret that conflict, scarcity, and instability often more heavily affect women and marginalised communities. Now, with the urgency of climate change, how are the threads of gender dynamics woven throughout this pressing global crisis?

    Cambria Khayat is a young advocate for the reversal of climate change and is currently a student of economics, international studies, and peace and conflict studies. In this episode, Cambria breaks down the straightforward yet multifaceted ways in which gender and climate change intersect, using highly relevant examples to show that these challenges are not separate fights but instead two sides of the same coin. Cambria speaks of how climate change impact can pose threats to peace and security, and classifies climate change as a form of invisible violence with a generational impact that worsens over time. This episode shows us that the time for change is now, and that, if already existing forms of resistance, resilience, and climate mitigation strategies are harnessed, we can turn this crisis around!

    No Peace Without Equality: Gender, Peace & Intersectionality in Libya (S06E01)

    No Peace Without Equality: Gender, Peace & Intersectionality in Libya (S06E01)

    After a tumultuous decade, marked by two civil wars, a permanent ceasefire was signed in Libya in October 2020. In early 2021, the UN-led Libyan Political Dialogue Forum assigned a new interim government, the Government of National Unity, in an attempt to stabilise the political scene and to organise parliamentary and presidential elections on the 24th December 2021.

    In preparation for the elections, we sat down with Inas Miloud, an indigenous feminist activist from the Amazigh community in Libya. Inas is the co-founder and currently Co-Executive Director of Tamazight Women’s Movement, an intersectional organization that works to address gender, youth and indigenous people’s inequalities in Libya. Her work has been particularly focused on gender, peace and security, militarization, indigenous issues, and intersectionality. In this episode, we discuss how Inas became involved in peacebuilding and what needs to be demystified in this field. We hear about Inas’ stories as an indigenous activist, her work with the Tamazight Women’s Movement, and her hopes for the future of Libya.

    Liens entre Environnement et Paix au Sahel: la Jeunesse Dirige le Changement (S05E03)

    Liens entre Environnement et Paix au Sahel: la Jeunesse Dirige le Changement (S05E03)

    [English text below!]
    Le maintien de la sécurité environnementale et de la paix est le plus important défi auquel l’humanité n’a jamais fait face. Or, ils sont tous deux inextricablement liés. Cette double conjoncture aggrave les difficultés de manière quotidienne dans la région du Sahel. Les changements climatiques sont l'une des causes de la Guerre du Sahel ainsi que de la recrudescence du terrorisme. Ils provoquent aussi des conflits autour de ressources naturelles, génèrent des maladies tuant des milliers de personnes chaque année, affectent de manière critique la sécurité nutritionnelle, la pauvreté et les sources d’énergie. Au milieu de cette situation très complexe, l’ONG Espaces Verts du Sahel (EVS - du Tchad, mais aussi au Cameroun, Burkina Faso, Mali et Niger) a accompli un impressionnant travail de formation de centaines de (très) jeunes-experts à répondre de manière proactive aux problématiques environnementales. Avec eux, l’ONG a réussi à conduire d’impressionnants efforts de plaidoyer auprès de hautes sphères politiques nationales et internationales, stimulant du changement vers la préservation de l’environnement et une paix durable.
    Joël Yodoyman, coordinateur de l’ONG et membre de l’Équipe-Pays de la CSPPS au Tchad, souhaite vous parler, auditeurs du Podcast, alors écoutez cet épisode pour recevoir son important message !

    PS : Nous sommes heureux de présenter un premier épisode en français, pour un Peace Corner Podcast plus inclusif !

    Environment and Peace Relations in the Sahel: Youth Leading Change

    The safeguarding of environmental security and peace is the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced. More importantly, they are inextricably bound together. This dual predicament intensifies the struggle in the Sahel region daily. Climate change is one of the causes of both the Sahel War as well as a surge in terrorism. It also causes conflicts over natural resources, generates disease outbreaks, which kill thousands of people every year and critically affects nutritional security, poverty and access to energy. Amid this highly challenging situation, the NGO Espaces Verts du Sahel (EVS - based in Chad, but also in Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger) has accomplished the outstanding work of training hundreds of (very) young experts to respond proactively to environmental challenges. The NGO has succeeded in conducting impressive advocacy efforts at the highest national and international political levels, stimulating change towards a sustainable environment and peace.
    Joel Yodoyman, coordinator of the NGO and member of the CSPPS Country Team in Chad, is looking forward to talking to you, so tune in to catch his powerful message!

    P.S.: We are happy to present this first French-speaking episode in a bid to diversify towards the Peace Corner Podcast!

    Activism Through Art: Championing Transgender Rights in India (S05E02)

    Activism Through Art: Championing Transgender Rights in India (S05E02)

    For centuries, the transgender community across India has been battling for basic livelihood, dignity and social acceptance. In 2014, the Supreme Court of India finally recognised the transgender community’s civil rights in the country. Kalki Subramaniam was one of the most prominent activists behind this milestone.

    In this episode of the Peace Corner Podcast, Mori Plaschinski from UNOY sits down with transgender activist and artist Kalki Subramaniam to discuss how art can help to advocate for gender diversity and trans rights in India and worldwide.

    Through Kalki’s “artivism” we learn about the role of trans people as changemakers and their journeys to achieving equality, safety, peace and well-being for their communities.

    Tune in to discover how performance and art have been key pieces for LGBT+ peacebuilding in Tamilnadu-India, and beyond!
