PN-WAND meeting
September 29, 2013 to October 02, 2013

As part of the “Women, Peace and Security” partnership, EWI’s Parliamentarians Network for Conflict Prevention and Women’s Action for New Directions (WAND) are bringing together more than a hundred U.S. state legislators and international parliamentarians in Washington D.C., from September 29 to October 1. An invitation-only session will follow on October 2.

Following the first meeting in Ankara with women U.S. state legislators and parliamentarians from the wider MENA region, including Afghanistan and Pakistan, this gathering will include capacity building sessions and participation in WAND’s biannual conference “Women at the Tables of Power.” Melanne Verveer, United States Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues, will be a keynote speaker.

The conference features the Parliamentarians Network's critical role in advocating for the successful implementation of UN Security Council resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.
