Foundation CURE in cooperation with Women Association “ NERA “ invites women from Konjic and close area to workshop „Women and peacebuilding in Bosnia and Herzegovina”
We, women activists want to create a safe space for women to share their stories and survival mechanisms in the last 25 years. We want to share lessons learned to the next generations and other women in different conflict areas.
During this workshop, Dubravka Kovačević, activist and director of Foundation for women empowerment and Elvedina Alić, the president of Women Association „NERA“ Konjic will share their experiences. Jadranka Miličević, activist and executive director of Foundation CURE will facilitate the workshop.
We are aware that as citizens of the world we have a tremendous responsibility to provide tools and recommendations for all women activists who could lead peace negotiations in their countries.
The project „Women and peacebuilding in Bosnia and Herzegovina“ which Foundation CURE has the main goal to raise awareness of European and international community on the need to include women in phases of peacebuilding and negotiations. It is based on the learned lessons of women who have survived all forms of war violence in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project provides the opportunity for sharing messages of resistance, survival, hope, and peace from a women’s perspective.
Even 25 years after the Dayton peace treaty, Bosnia and Herzegovina can not overcome the consequences of inadequate women participation in the peace negotiation process. Women were not present during negotiation, and the peace treaty did not take into consideration the needs of women and girls. This has led to negative consequences on the daily life of our citizens.
The workshop is organized within the project „Women and peacebuilding in Bosnia and Herzegovina“ which is financially supported by Women’s World Day of Prayer (WWDP) – German Committee.
* Foundation CURE will cover refreshment expenses for all participants of the workshop.
