Working for feminist peace amidst conflict

Tuesday April 20, 2021 15:30 - 16:30 2

Exhibitor: Internationella Kvinnoförbundet för Fred och Frihet

Lecturers: Diana Salcedo, Guy Feugap

Conflict and civil war often affect people within the country differently (with regard to geographical area, if you are a part of a minority, power and money, gender, etc.) and often lead to large flows of internally displaced persons. The civil war in Colombia has led to the forced relocation of people in conflict-affected areas, and despite a signed peace agreement, land rights issues remain a challenge. In Cameroon, the security situation has deteriorated sharply in recent years, with Boko Haram's presence in the north and the serious separatist crisis in the country's English-speaking regions. The conflicts have led to strong internal refugee flows. 

Diana Salcedo, WILPF Colombia, and Guy Feugap, WILPF Cameroon, discuss internally displaced persons / forced relocations with a focus on human security, shrinking democratic space, rights, identity and the path to sustainable peace. The discussion is based on their feminist peace work, with current analyzes and examples in the light of Covid-19 from Colombia and Cameroon respectively.
