Religion and the 'Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda'
What potential does religion have to advance the WPS Agenda? How can we bridge religious actors and WPS stakeholders to create unexpected alliances? How can we focus on the opportunities that engaging religion offers to localizing the WPS agenda, while acknowledging its limitations?
These questions form the core of the event “Religion and the Women, Peace and Security Agenda”, organized by Cordaid and supported by the Knowledge Management Fund.
2020 marks a significant year for the WPS Agenda and community. The momentum of the 20th anniversary of UNSC resolution 1325 encourages thinking about promising ideas to enhance and improve the Agenda. One such idea: harnessing religion in furtherance of WPS. For the majority of the world’s population, religion shapes their everyday life. How might we build on the centrality of religion to people’s lives to achieve implementation of the WPS Agenda?
This event brings together experts holding a multitude of perspectives to further explore the relationship between WPS and religion. October 1st will also serve as the kick-off to create a Community of Practice that will aim to share and facilitate knowledge exchange and explore ways to integrate the nexus between religion and the WPS agenda into our daily work.
