On January 18, 2018, The Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA), the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), and the Swedish Embassy in Oslo, will arrange a Research and Policy Dialogue on Women, Peace and Security in Mediation.

This will bring together members of the Norwegian and the Swedish Women Mediator Networks, key stakeholders from the Norwegian and the Swedish Ministries for Foreign Affairs and Defense, and leading international scholars from the FBA Research Working Group on Women, Peace and Security. 

The purpose is to create a platform for the effective exchange of knowledge and experiences relevant for supporting women’s participation and integrating gender equality in ongoing mediation and peace processes. 

Note that participation is by invitation only.
