Since 2012, the Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination, the Permanent Mission of Liechtenstein to the UN, and the PeaceWomen Program of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) have co-organized a panel series to promote the UN's Women, Peace, and Security agenda. The panels have covered a wide range of topics from the WPS agenda with the goal to facilitate dialogue and build momentum leading up to the UN's high-level 15-year review of the Women, Peace, and Security agenda which was established with UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in 2000. The October 23 panel will be the final event of the lecture series. The panel will discuss lessons learned, reflect on the outcomes of the high-level review as well as key elements to ensure successful implementation of the Women, Peace, and Security Agenda in the future.
