Investing in Peace? Violence Against Women, Militarism, and Budgeting for "Security"

At Salvation Army Auditorium 221 East 52nd Street
On 4th March 2013 10:30 a.m. - noon


A panel discussion with high-level experts in the areas of violence against women, human security and militarism. The discussion will focus on the links between gender-based violence, and the prioritization and allocation of national budgets in the name of "security." It will include an analysis of the ways in which state spending reflects the expressed security priorities of civil society worldwide, and the impacts of militarism on women, families, communities, and society as a whole. In keeping with the theme of CSW57, specific attention will be given to the gendered effects of militarism on women, and the ways in which gender-aware budgeting can help offset some of the negative effects on gender relations caused by militarized societies. The panel will be built on CWGL, the Global Fund and WILPF’s current focus areas of militarism, gender-based violence, security, and peace-building.

Organized by Center for Women’s Global Leadership, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Global Fund for Women
