There are currently two billion people living in conflict-affected countries. In these countries, women are working against the tide to build and sustain peace, and have continued to do so even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, but their role remains marginal at times.
The 20th anniversary is an ideal date to, on the one hand, take stock of the achievements and shortcomings of Resolution 1325 in the framework of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda. And, on the other hand, to reflect on its present relevance and future usefulness. From this perspective, the aim of the 15th Conference on Security, Defence and Cooperation of the Forum for Peace in the Mediterranean is to analyse the role of women in three areas related to peace and security: in contemporary armed conflicts; in the implementation of movements for peace and gender equality; and in peace negotiations, with a close look at Spain's participation in the development of these processes and tools. To this end, we will be joined by academics who will enlighten us on the conceptual and theoretical framework, as well as activists and members of civil society involved in its practical application.
