Online High-Level Roundtable: “Tackling the Shadow Pandemic – Violence Against Women During COVID-19 Times”
One in three women experiences physical or sexual violence at least once in their lifetime. Every year, the Ban Ki-moon Centre supports the global UN Women campaign “Orange the World” that takes place between the 25th of November and the 10th of December to raise awareness for this grave issue.
On Wednesday 25 November (15-16:30 CET) - the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women - the Inter-Parliamentary Union and Kofi Annan Foundation will convene a group of experts and leaders* in the field to discuss concrete solutions and policy responses, and promote their urgent adoption and implementation.
On the occasion of the 20 year anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, the IGC Den Haag Hub seizes the opportunity to look back at what has been achieved in the last 20 years and what challenges still remain to be tackled today. Together with Ms. Christine Schraner Burgener, Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General on Myanmar, we will discuss the role of women as agents of peace.
As part of the Gender Champions Challenge - Open to the IGC network only
