Sonke’s Executive Director, Dean Peacock, features in this video about the ‘Men, Peace & Security: Agents of Change’ symposium co-convened by Sonke, The U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP), The World Bank, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)-North America, Women in International Security (WIIS), and Promundo.
This symposium aims to better understand how the ascribed norms of men and masculine identities contribute to, and may even help mitigate violent conflict and post-conflict. It builds upon and complements the work of the Women, Peace, and Security agenda, especially as seen through the UN Security Council Resolution 1325. It applies the lens of gender to the broader issues surrounding peace and security.
