The 2009 Northeast Asian Women´s Peace Conference:
Negotiating Regional Peace, Reconciliation and Cooperation

Presented by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies and the Organizing Committee of the Northeast Asian Women´s Peace Conference

Tuesday, October 6, 2009
10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
The State Room
7th Floor, 1957 E Street, NW
George Washington University

Women´s voices are important but have often gone unheard during the Six Party Talks and the U.S.-DPRK talks on the future of the Korean Peninsula. This conference, in contrast, brings together a diverse group of Asian and American women speakers from civil society and government to address peace and security issues in Northeast Asia. The conference will provide a space for discussion of steps to reduce military tension and build peace in Northeast Asia and ways to realize UNSCR 1325, which recognized "the important role of women in the prevention and resolution of conflicts and in peace-building and stressing the importance of their equal participation and full involvement in all efforts for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security."

This event is endorsed by American Friends Service Committee, The Hague Appeal for Peace, International Women´s Tribune Center, Peace X Peace, Women´s Action for New Directions, Women´s International League for Peace and Freedom International, Women´s International League for Peace and Freedom U.S. Section, Peace Boat, Global Partnership for Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) Northeast Asia, National Association of Korean Americans, Bongha Washington, the Women´s Mobilization Program of World Conference of Religions for Peace and the Washington Coalition for ´Comfort Women´ Issues.
