Tune in on Tuesday to hear, professor Aisling Swaine, and others, discuss National Action Plans. What are they and how they can help to increase implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda. This event is specifically looking at these issues from an African context. For anyone who knows professor Swaine, you know that she is an expert in the Women, Peace and Security agenda. She works at GW’s Elliott School of International Affairs, where she teaches four courses a year.
In the Fall she leads an undergraduate course, “Women, Rights, and Gender Equality”, and a graduate course, “Global Gender Policy”. She follows those courses up in the Spring with an undergraduate course, “Gender and Conflict”, and a graduate course, “Gender, War and Peace”.
In Tuesday’s webinar, National Action Plans on Women, Peace and Security: What is the experience on the ground?, they will discuss whether National Action Plans are useful tools or only serve a superficial purpose. We are all eager to hear where professor Swaine stands and what prospects she sees for National Action Plans in Africa’s future.
