Women, Peace & Security Roundtable

Join us in Adelaide on Wednesday September 26, for a civil society discussion on Women, Peace and Security.

What does peace mean to you? What does security mean? What should Australia be doing differently to build peace and security in Australia and our region?

The global challenges of climate change, extreme poverty and inequality, armed conflict and widespread violations of human rights require global solutions which reflect the priorities, skills and experiences of all people. Yet, too often women’s voices are overlooked by Governments and policymakers.

For diverse women in Australia and our region, this is a critical time to have our voices heard on peace and security as Australia contemplates the next phase of its National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security.

The Roundtables will provide a forum to discuss what the Australian Government can do, in co-operation with civil society, to limit the possibility of conflict within or between communities, states and countries, and to provide avenues for women’s participation in peace processes within Australia and internationally.

Wednesday September 26
10 am – 2 pm (includes free lunch)
Flinders University City Campus – Victoria Square, Adelaide (Room 2.3, Level 2)
