Women Peacemakers Before and After 1325: Learning Process on the Role of Women Peacemakers Globally – Conversation with Rosa Emilia Salamanca

We were honored to host Rosa Emilia Salamanca as the keynote speaker. Rosa Emilia Salamanca is the Director of the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Action (CIASE), an organization working for peace human rights and democracy from a feminist perspective. Ms. Salamanca has worked intensively on the peace process between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) contributing to one of the most inclusive peace agreements in the world. Ms. Salamanca facilitates dialogue and generates strategies for sustaining peace as a mediator in the Women Peace and Security Collective for Reflection and Action. Ms. Salamanca also led a working group officially recognized by the Ministry of Defense that advises the national armed forces on the varied security needs and priorities of women across the country. Her work as peacemaker and the Director of CIASE will provide us with valuable insights about the critical roles women play in conflict resolution, democratization, social development and human rights. Recording available below.

This was the fourth session on the CPCS' Women, Peace and Security program. It featured a discussion on the implementation of UN resolution 1325 and its implications in Colombia, South America in commemoration of Women History Month, and was co-sponsored by the United Nations Association of the USA, a program of the UN Foundation.
