Because we can
WPL Democracy, Peace and Security Summit
Because we can
Current growing global insecurity, wars that ravage countries, and humanitarian emergencies make it crucial to join efforts and look for inclusive solutions. Equality between women and men stands as an essential cross cutting issue across all sectors and domains of political participation, civic activism, and conflict resolution. However, women continue to be excluded from conflict prevention, peace negotiations and decision making during conflict
This reality makes it imperative to amplify the voices of women leaders.
In this spirit, WPL is looking forward to co-hosting the upcoming WPL Democracy, Peace and Security Summit in Yerevan, Armenia on 19-20 October 2023!
Over two days, the WPL Democracy, Peace and Security Summit programme will have meaningful discussions on democracy, peace and security. Political figures will bring to the table proposals, lessons learned, and solutions for inclusive governance and conflict resolution. The discussions will have one common goal: to emphasise the profound role of women in shaping stability and safety for all.
Armenia’s considerable progress in building a sustainable democracy and consistent efforts towards inclusive solutions in the region make it a natural setting to convene worldwide leaders. Co-hosted by the Government of Armenia, the WPL Democracy, Peace and Security Summit will take place in the capital city of Yerevan. When in Armenia, WPL Summit attendees can also take part in the learning journey; a celebration of the country, its history, people, and culture. It provides visitors with a unique in-country experience.
