Banner for the WILPF webinar “Understanding the Causes of Multidimensional Insecurity in Yemen and Libya” (Visual: WILPF)
On 23 March 2017 the Women’s International League of Peace and Freedom (WILPF) held a webinar launching an analytical study on ever-growing levels of insecurity and violence in Libya and Yemen. The webinar was well attended with participants from across the world and explored the rapidly shifting political landscape that permitted destructive economy of wars to prevail over sustainable peace and the rule of law.
WILPF planned to launch this study at the 61st Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW61). However, panelists were unable to attend the forum. In this vein, taking place under the shadow of escalated discriminatory policies that limit women’s agency, the conversation allowed panelists to examine multidimensional security concerns of women in both countries and propose ways for strengthening women's participation and monitoring of its implementation by Member States and the UN.
