Discussion

Women, Peace & Security

Security for Women, by Women in the Afghan Peace Process

On 20 June 2019, KAS organised a roundtable discussion to build a network for women working on security.

Details

This women-only Roundtable aimed to connect women working on security issues or in precarious security environments, coming from different fields and backgrounds: government, parliament, civil society, media, think tanks, local and international security forces, and private business.

It is a first initiative from which a platform of information, mentoring and career support for women working in and on security may grow. The goal is to build strong women networks to provide security – for women, by women.
