Regional Workshop on Women’s Leadership for Peace and Security in the Greater Horn of Africa

October 09, 2009

Organised in Addis Ababa with the UN Economic Commission for Africa and the African Union Commission and the CdM partners (Strategic Initiative for Women in the Horn of Africa, Isis-WICCE and the Institute for Security Studies) on 6-9 Oct 2009, with Members Kim Campbell and Mary Robinson.


Campbell and Robinson co-chaired this inaugural meeting, which is part of a 3-year project launched with the support of the Governments of Norway and Germany. This initiative takes a strategic approach to harnessing the differences of female leadership at national, personal, professional and cultural levels –tapping a rich melting pot of ideas and activity across multiple skill sets and areas of expertise for transforming conflict.

Workshop activities included intensive training, thematic group work and high-level roundtable discussion to produce specific policy and action recommendations aimed at increasing the presence and impact of women in decision-making and peace processes in the Horn of Africa.
