WIIS Brussels looks forward to resuming its consultations on the evolving concept of security this autumn. Are you in?
Building on our past experience with this unique process, 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. This is an opportunity for you, WIIS Brussels members and friends, to engage beyond expertise and to come as a community to reflect and share your stories or perceptions of security.
We seek ways to be more inclusive and we always look for opportunities for greater diversity in our approaches, opening up to other communities of women. For our next round of consultation in September, we will be joined by a group of Afghan women from various backgrounds and professional portfolios. They include human rights defenders, artists, media professionals, gender experts, and others.
This WIIS Consultation will enable to share perspectives on women’s roles in peace and security in Afghanistan, and generate further discussion on aspects of human security. However, it requires a proper exchange of perspectives on our respective experiences, and that means that we want to hear from you, our members to also share with our guests from your personal stories. This is not meant to be about the situation in Afghanistan. It is an opportunity to bring women together and find resonance, greater understanding for our respective experiences of security today, whatever may be our specific environment.
Are you curious? Join us for an online conversation on Tuesday, 19 September, from 18:30 to 19:30 CET.
In order to create a safe space for all participants who want to share their thoughts and experiences, this event will not be recorded. In any event, this is not about what you will hear in substance, but rather about the experience of sharing with one another. You can find more information about our previous consultations and the journey we have embarked upon in this article on our website.
