Join the Alliance for Peacebuilding for a discussion on the implications of Taliban control of and the withdrawal of U.S. and allied military forces from Afghanistan on Afghan women, girls, and their families. The event will explore the challenges involved in recent evacuation efforts, how women were disproportionately marginalized from evacuation and various immigration pathways, what is at stake for Afghan women and girls that remain in Afghanistan, and how the international community can support and help preserve their tremendous gains over the last 20 years.

21 September marks the International Day of Peace, an opportunity to commit to building a culture of peace. But what exactly is a culture of peace and how do we build it? On this 40th anniversary of World Peace Day our world is far from peaceful.
The US withdrawal from Afghanistan has precipitated war and surrender to the Taliban leaving Afghans behind. Women peacebuilders, who have long been on the frontlines negotiating for peace, now face exponential risk of targeted killings along with other activists and human rights defenders. Meanwhile Colombia marks the fifth anniversary of its peace agreement and despite initial progress, women peacebuilders voice concern about the lack of implementation, particularly regarding the inclusion of women and youth, and the deteriorating security situation. The Global Peace Index reported deterioration in peace in 73 countries, a trend of nine of the last 13 years. Demonstrations, riots and militarisation continue to increase, exacerbated by the weakness of state institutions and rule of law exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A Legitimate Peace: balancing international involvement with local ownership and short-term with long-term peacebuilding needs
Harmonizing short-term and long-term needs in peace processes is a well-known difficulty. One of the key challenges relates to the disjointed and siloed nature of the work of different actors operating in peace processes and conflict-affected settings. The variety of development, humanitarian, security, and military actors all have different mandates, goals and operating procedures which has made genuine integration of objectives and peace outcomes difficult. What shifts are needed to increase the legitimacy, durability and inclusivity of peace processes? What are the traps to avoid and the ‘Must-Dos’ to support a more durable approach to peace?
The panel will bring together ministerial level government representatives, eminent members of the International Commission for Inclusive Peace as well as senior UN officials to discuss on these questions.
