On May 21, 2014, PeaceWomen hosted a panel discussion on conflict prevention and women’s participation in Ukraine as part of its Lecture Series on Women, Peace and Security (WPS). Co-sponsored by the Permanent Mission of Liechtenstein to the United Nations and the Liechtenstein Institute on Self Determination at Princeton University, this panel discussion focused on two pillars of the WPS Agenda: prevention and participation. Current military tensions have put women’s rights and participation increasingly at risk in Ukraine. Natalia Karbowska, a Ukrainian women’s leader, and Grigore Pop-Eleches, Associate Professor at Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs discussed the conflict in Ukraine and women’s full and equal participation in shaping Ukraine’s future.
