Welcome to the Thursday seminars at the Centre for Gender Research! The Thursday seminars provide a meeting place for gender research from many different disciplines. OPEN FOR ALL! No registration required.

Much work on Resolution 1325 and the agenda of ‘Women, peace and security’ has its focus on how Resolution 1325 has ‘trickled down’ from the global to the local level. This presentation will reverse the gaze highlighting women’s local perspectives asking what the ‘‘Women, peace and security" agenda have done for respectively the national women’s organisations and local women’s groups in a specific African post-conflict setting – Rwanda. The presentation sheds light on the local / global dynamics in the processes of translating Resolution 1325 into practice with a focus on the gender language and practice.
