The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination will co-sponsor a panel discussion, "Investing in Women for Peace: Women’s Participation and Security in Ukraine," on Wednesday, May 21, 2014, at 3:00 p.m. at the United Nations in New York (Conference Room B). Discussants will include Natalia Karbowska, Board Chair of the Ukrainian Women’s Fund, and Grigore Pop-Eleches, Associate Professor of Politics and International Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School. To attend the panel, RSVP to Antonia Strachwitz.

The current military tensions in Ukraine have put women's rights and political and civil society participation increasingly at risk. This event will address the interplay of gender, peace and security issues in Ukraine, and consider how best to strengthen women’s full and equal participation in shaping Ukraine’s future.

The panel is part of a series of lectures and panels on the UN's Women, Peace, and Security Agenda, organized by LISD's Project on Women in the Global Community, the Permanent Mission of Liechtenstein to the United Nations, and the PeaceWomen Project of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF).
