Warfare and Peacemaking in the 21st Century: who's taking responsibility to protect and promote peace
Online

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

In Their Shoes: Navigating Non-Binary Life
Online

With Jamie Windust plus special guest to be announced.
‘There is no one way to be non-binary, and that’s truthfully one of the best things about it. It’s an identity that is yours to shape.’

Housmans and JKP are delighted to present Jamie Windust, award-winning non-binary writer, public speaker and model, an author of In Their Shoes: Navigating Non-Binary Life.

Combining light-hearted anecdotes with their own hard-won wisdom, Jamie explores everything from fashion, dating, relationships and family, through to mental health, work and future key debates. From trying on clothes in secret to iconic looks, first dates to polyamorous liaisons, passports to pronouns, Jamie shows you how to navigate the world and your evolving identity in every type of situation. In Their Shoes is a call to arms for non-binary self-acceptance, self-appreciation and self-celebration.
