"Opportunities and challenges of peace processes: How Colombia, Nepal and the Philippines are working towards sustainable peace"

27.11.2019 - 27.11.2019, Bern

Panel discussion with experts from Colombia, Nepal and the Philippines: the three countries are at different points in their peace processes. What are the differences and similarities? What role do women play in reconciliation and reconstruction? What can the countries learn from each other so that peace in their countries lasts?

Peace processes present both an opportunity and a challenge. They are the starting point for the transition from war and conflict to a more just society in which everyone – including women – can participate and exercise their rights. But what about the reality? Colombia, Nepal and the Philippines are all at different points in their peace processes. What are the differences and similarities? What role do women play in reconciliation and reconstruction? What can the countries learn from each other so that peace in their countries lasts.
