Date: 01.06.10 – 02.06.10
Location: Spain – Spanish Senate, Madrid
The gender dimensions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and possible solutions have gone largely unrecognized. Women’s voices, and the perspectives of individuals and organizations committed to the human rights of women and gender equality are absent or underrepresented in formal mechanisms for the prevention and resolution of conflict. At the Spanish Senate in Madrid, UNIFEM and the International Women's Commission (IWC), with the support of the Government of Spain, are sponsoring a two-day, high-level colloquium on 1–2 June to highlight the often overlooked dimension of women’s leadership in the resolution of the conflict. This meeting is particularly relevant as the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 marks its 10th anniversary.
Sponsored by: UNIFEM and International Women’s Commission (IWC) with support from the Government of Spain
