Women’s Peacebuilding Work – Unrecognized Care?

RSVP Here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/womens-peacebuilding-work-unrecognized-care-tickets-123526835089

Feminist and women's peace-making work is largely unrecognized and is chronically under-resourced. COVID-19 has amplified this gap; even though women peacebuilders are at the forefront of responses, they continue to be excluded from public decision-making on recovery. This seminar introduces findings on the topic of peacebuilding as care from the University of Sydney, as well as perspectives from grassroots peacebuilders.

 

Panelists:

Laura J. Shepherd is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow and Professor of International Relations at the University of Sydney. Her primary field of research relates to the development and implementation of the WPS agenda, and she is co-Director of the UKRI GCRF Gender, Justice and Security Hub.

Caitlin Hamilton is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Gender, Justice and Security at the University of Sydney. Her research interests include the WPS agenda, everyday world politics, and innovative approaches to methods and methodology.

Anu Mundkur has extensive practical experience in the fields of international relations (particular focus on human security), gender and development. Anu is one of the founding members of the Australian Civil Society Coalition on Women, Peace and Security and continues to serve on its Steering Group. She is also the WPS Coalition's representative on the Australian Government's Inter-departmental Subcommittee for Australia's National Plan on Women, Peace and Security.
