The 14th UNOG-DCAF Seminar: gender equality, security and justice

The 14th UNOG-DCAF Seminar: gender equality, security and justice
24 November 2017, Geneva, Switzerland

The 14th UNOG-DCAF seminar will focus on the intersection between SDG 5 (Gender Equality), and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) by demonstrating the contemporary development links between achieving gender equality and expanding access to security and justice. The seminar will highlight insights gained through the High Level Political Forum in July 2017, present new knowledge, build on practical examples, and develop policy recommendations on how Good Security Sector Governance, an integral element of SDG 16, can ultimately contribute to the implementation of SDG 5. It will thereby focus on three key topics of gender inequality: implicit gender bias, patriarchal masculinities, and the context of vulnerability.
