The School of Diplomacy’s Center for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPCS) invites you to participate in the fourth session of the Speaker Series on Women, Peace, and Security to further the discussion on the implementation of UN Resolution 1325 and its implications in Colombia, South America.
We are honored to host Rosa Emilia Salamanca as the keynote speaker. Rosa Emilia Salamanca is the Director of the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Action (CIASE), an organization working for peace human rights and democracy from a feminist perspective. Ms. Salamanca has worked intensively on the peace process between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) contributing to one of the most inclusive peace agreements in the world. Ms. Salamanca facilitates dialogue and generates strategies for sustaining peace as a mediator in the Women Peace and Security Collective for Reflection and Action. Ms. Salamanca also led a working group officially recognized by the Ministry of Defense that advises the national armed forces on the varied security needs and priorities of women across the country. Her work as peacemaker and the Director of CIASE will provide us with valuable insights about the critical roles women play in conflict resolution, democratization, social development and human rights.
