2020: "Women, Peace & Security: Where is equality?"

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of UN Resolution 1325 on "Women, Peace and Security", the Swiss Platform for Peacebuilding (KOFF) interviews our Director Flurina Derungs about the importance of this political agenda and why to this day far too few women participate in peace negotiations. Anat Al-Mzayyen (Palestinian Working Women Society for Development) and Sarah Koch (Gender Focal Point at the Human Security Division of the FDFA) are also interviewed.
