The participation of women in decision-making, conflict prevention and resolution and any other peace initiative is essential to the realization of lasting peace. Since the full and complete development of a country, the welfare of the world and the cause of peace require the maximum participation of women, a transformed partnership based on equality between women and men is needed as a condition to fulfill the Sustainable Development Goals.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • To promote actions and programmes on education aimed at including in schools the equality between girls and boys as a means to fight against future discrimination and disparities in our societies.

  • To strengthen in the work of the United Nations women’s perspective in the field of peace, diplomacy and multilateralism through the organization of events, teachings, exchanges and trainings.
