The event will highlight how technological tools including

equal access and participation in peace processes. Participants

(WILPF), ABAAD – Resource Center for Gender Equality, and
WITNESS will discuss the opportunities and limits of technical
tools, advantages and risks involved in using them on the ground,
and the importance of addressing structural obstacles to
participation for peace and meaningful change.
