Each month we bring you a selection of key peacebuilding dates in the month to come. Here are a choice of selected September events and observances.
The Women’s Federation for World Peace International will be hosting a webinar, “No Peace without Women, “What do Women Bring to Peace Processes, Conflict Prevention and Human Security?” to commemorate International Peace Day. Afterwards, the event will have three sessions of 75 minutes, each with 3-4 speakers. In the second session, Inclusive Peace’s Executive Director Dr Thania Paffenholz will be making her contributions to the discussion “How do Women Negotiate Differently?”
15 September: International Day for Democracy
This year’s theme of “Strengthening democratic resilience in the face of future crises,” will be an opportunity to take a look at the state of the world’s democracies. It is important to recognise that democracy is not a static goal, but rather a process. The ideal of democracy can only become a reality with the full participation and support of the international community, national governing bodies, civil society, and individuals.
28 September: International Day for Universal Access to Information
In October 2019, the 74th UN General Assembly proclaimed 28 September as the International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI) at the UN level. This year’s theme is, “Artificial Intelligence, e-Governance and Access to Information.” Inclusive Peace offers unrestricted access to our website’s resource page which has papers from policy briefs to reports. Based on our core themes, there are papers from policy briefs to reports focusing on inclusion in peace and political transition processes.
