Two years ago, WIIS Brussels launched a series of consultations on the evolving concept of security. Together, we will continue to explore what ‘security’ means to us personally, how this concept is changing and what role communities play in shaping a secure environment for us.

As part of the Women’s Information Consultative Center in Ukraine (www.wicc.net.ua), Ms Olena Suslova will be joining the next Consultation on Security with WIIS Brussels members and guests. Olena Suslova is a researcher, a human rights and gender activist with more than 30 years of experience. She has worked in Ukraine as well as countries of the former Soviet Union as a short-term expert and trainer on gender, peace culture, conflict resolution, among others. She founded an NGO, the Women’s Information Consultative Center, in 1995. She published around 50 books, research articles, and manuals on gender issues. She works on the WPS agenda since 2010.

Given the changing nature of conflict and security, we would like to invite you to join us to engage in the upcoming consultation with the women from Ukraine, and also share your stories or perceptions of security.

This WIIS Consultation will seek to share perspectives on women’s roles in peace and security in Ukraine and in Europe more broadly, and generate further discussion on aspects of human security.

Join us for an online conversation on Wednesday, 19 October, from 19:00 to 20:00 CET.

This event is a common reflection process on how our security environment impacts our views on security, stability and well-being, whether in or around conflict zone. In order to create a safe space for all participants who want to share their thoughts and experiences, this event will not be recorded. You can find more information about our previous consultations and the journey we have embarked upon in this article on our website.

Places are limited, so make sure to register by emailing info@wiis-brussels.org. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive technical details for the participants.
