Event Date: 
September 24, 2008 - 16:00 - September 26, 2008 - 16:00

An international working conference to probe and address global acquiescence to impunity, gender violence and exclusion that continues to obstruct peacebuilding and deny human security.

The horrifying scope and magnitude of abuse in spite of good intentions of peacemakers and peacebuilders demands constant examination. The eruption of gender violence and the denial of human dignity to those caught in international struggles to end conflict and gain human rights are inexcusable. Human security must be achieved to bring the human community together to tackle the common problems that lie ahead for this small planet.
Successful strategies for overcoming cycles of conflict and exploitation will be illuminated and expanded in this international working conference. Delegates should be engaged in research, policymaking, peacbuilding and peacekeeping related to:

- Ending cycles of conflict through gender inclusive peacebuilding.
- Protecting civilians in armed conflict from violence, including sexual violence.
- Enforcing justice over impunity at all stages of conflict transformation.

Application forms and more information available at:
