conferences and topics (2021)

Universidad Carlos III (Madrid)

The mutation experimented throughout the world in the last three decades is manifested in its greater form in the international peace and security fields. This can be observe in every perspective of analysis related to both fields: the very concepts of peace and security; the risks and threats endangering them; prevention and treatment of conflicts; the intense relation existing among development and human rights; and also, and as a consequence of all this, the essential paper that women can and should perform in conflict management and resolution.

These questions, along with some others related to the main topic, were analyzed in “Security, peace, women and conflict resolution”, the first of a cycle of debates within the contest Defensa y yo, which took place on 8th February at 11:00h, via Zoom Pro, due to health conditions.
