Open webinar on Preventing gender-based violence through arms control: Tools and guidelines to implement the Arms Trade Treaty and UN Programme of Action
Mark your calendars! You are invited to a WILPF webinar on
12 April 2016 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. (CET).
Every day around the world, conventional weapons exacerbate power differences and facilitate acts of violence, including those rooted in gender discrimination. Effective implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) and the UN Programme of Action on small arms (UNPoA) presents a unique opportunity to prevent gender-based violence (GBV).
WILPF is now publishing a report that seeks to provide tools and guidelines for effective implementation of the ATT and the UNPoA, including how to conduct an export risk assessment on GBV and how to enhance gender mainstreaming in disarmament and arms control.
Ray Acheson, Director of WILPF’s Disarmament Programme, will introduce the work WILPF has been doing over the past year to strengthen the implementation of the ATT and UNPoA. Further, the author of WILPF’s new report, Rebecca Gerome, will present her findings.
