In 2021, the UN Security Council’s Women, Peace and Security Agenda turns 21. The 20th anniversary year brought renewed commitments by member states, but the engine, ingenuity and commitment to this agenda has always come from the frontline peacebuilders, practitioners, and advocates.

In this, the first 'In Conversation with' event, the director of the LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security, Sanam Naraghi Anderlini, will delve into the real world experiences and efforts to bring the vision and promise of the WPS agenda to life. Sanam will have an in-depth conversation with HRH The Countess of Wessex, Visaka Dharmadasa, Founder of the Association of War Affected Women, Sri Lanka, and Abir Hajibrahim, Co-Founder of Mobaderoon, Syria, about their entry into the policy and practice of peace and security; their personal reflections and motivations, their analysis of the issues, the persistent challenges, their achievements to date, and their hopes for the future.
This online public event is free and open to all but pre-registration is required: https://lse.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_TymEcnOmTF-Z0gdmi5HnDA
