On the Korean peninsula, women activists, religious groups, domestic and international civil society organisations have been working together for reconciliation for over seven decades. While the guns may have ceased firing 68 years ago, the “war” continues, and today the Korean peninsula continues to be affected by militarisation and constant threat of nuclear action.
This webinar examines the women-led and civil society movements that have been organised across the generations and across the globe in support of a peaceful final conclusion to the Korean war. Panelists examine the lessons which can be learned from the implementation of the women, peace and security agenda to enable meaningfully engagement of women in peace processes, and the implications of the process of moving towards a peace agreement of for the Korean peninsula, Northeast Asia region and globally.
