UN Human Rights Council Session 23 - Panel
VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN & THE HUMAN RIGHT TO PEACE
May 31, 20l3
3:00 pm - 5:00 p.m.
Palais des Nations - Room XXV
The goal of this Panel to define the serious and protracted violence against women dimensions in conflict, and the reason why women past, present, and future, want peace. The Panel will address the importance of the Human Right to Peace as a mechanism for advocacy for peace. The unique feature of a Human Right to Peace is that it would provide a UN document of substantive commitment of Member States to create a culture of peace, not react after the traumas of war and conflict. The Human Right to Peace would help protect the human rights defined in many important UN documents, as Security Council Resolution 1325, but so often lost or elusive before, during, and after conflict, especially for women and girls.
Moderator: Ms. Christina Papazoglou, Programme Executive for Human Rights, World Council of Churches
