Women, Peace and Security
From June 4th untill June 15, 2012 in The Hague
After two successful summer schools in 2010 and 2011, this year Oxfam Novib will again organize a summer school on Women, Peace and Security in The Hague, the Netherlands. Apply Now!
The summer school is organized in cooperation with the Grotius Centre for International Law (Leiden University), Oxfam Novib partner Women’s Initiative for Gender Justice, foreign policy think tank Clingendael and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It will take place from 4 to 15 June 2012.
The summer school on Women, Peace and Security targets women and men who seek to include women in active (political) participation and peace building efforts. The main objective of the training is to strengthen individual women and men and their organizations to enable more inclusive and effective peace building, and to facilitate networking. Individuals from conflict-affected areas or staff from organizations that want to advocate for implementation of the women, peace and security agenda and other inclusive conflict transformation efforts are welcome to participate.
For those in need of financial support, a limited number of scholarships are available. Participants interested in obtaining scholarships need to apply before 9 April. The general deadline for applications is 20 April. You can register via here.
