Law Women

The Third Annual Law Women Summit, “Women in Conflict: Gender, Violence, and Peacekeeping” 

The Third Annual Law Women Summit, “Women in Conflict: Gender, Violence, and Peacekeeping,” will be held on February 20th, 2015 from 11 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.  The Summit will be followed immediately by a Student-Alumnae Networking Reception and presentation of the Alumni of the Year Award from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  All events will be held in Greenberg Lounge. 

Coinciding with the 15th Anniversary of UN Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security, the Summit will address issues of women and gender in times of conflict, focusing on the particular effect that such situations have on catalyzing women to transform spaces of justice. Legal practitioners, academics, and theorists will bring together their diverse backgrounds, experiences, and areas of expertise to create a unique conversation addressing the evolving roles of women in conflict situations - as subjects, actors, participants, activists, leaders, peacemakers, negotiators, reformers, and advocates - and the social, legal, and institutional contexts in which they pursue them.
