Other WILPF Events
UN Headquarters

This panel event will address how synergies in the implementation of the gender-based violence (GBV) criterion in the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) and paragraphs 10 and 51 of the UN Programme of Action BMS5 outcome document can effectively be utilized; and how the GBV criterion in the ATT can be implemented and help enable more effective protection of human rights and prevention of armed violence. To provide a country-specific context, we will also explore the possible impact of disarmament and demobilisation efforts in post-conflict Colombia on women.
