Workshop at Austrian Institute for International Affairs (oiip) and CARE Austria on the EU-Action plan and 20th anniversary of the United Nations Security Council Res. 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.

On 12 November 2019, Madita Erdmann joined a group of researchers, policy makers, civil society actors, development and aid agencies and representatives of Austrian ministries to discuss the future implementation of the EU-Action Plan on the UN Women, Peace and Security Resolution (UNSCR 1325) within and outside of Austria. Amongst other points, the issue of migration, asylum and violence were discussed from various points of view, including Austria’s responsibility to comply with the resolution’s main premises on its own grounds. Furthermore, the issue of creating a ‘streetlight effect’ on certain forms of violence, such as FGM/C, while neglecting other intersecting forms was critically discussed.
