Event Description

October 2015 is the 15th anniversary of the landmark United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325. Join us to mark the occasion with an in depth discussion on women’s participation in conflict prevention, mitigation, resolution and peace processes.

Country focussed panels on both Myanmar and Solomon Islands will examine progress on this agenda from the perspective of the Australian Government, civil society and a woman involved in peace processes in-country.

We also invite key male leaders from Government, civil society and academia to reflect on what it means to be a male leader on the women, peace and security agenda and discuss opportunities to advance women’s leadership in this space.

An important outcome will be the third Civil Society Report Card, informed through small group discussions at the Dialogue and an online submission.

Speakers include: Assistant Commissioner Scott Lee, AFP; Jo Hayter, IWDA; Archie Law, ActionAid Australia; Stav Zotalis, CARE; James Batley, ANU; Sinclair Dinnen, ANU and Virginia Haussegger, Australian National Committee for UN Women & ABC Journalist, among many others.

The 2015 Annual Civil Society Dialogue is proudly facilitated by the Australian Council for International Development, the Australian National Committee for UN Women, the Australian National University Gender Institute, and the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.

The dialogue is supported by the Australian Civil Military Centre & Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (Office for Women).
