The International Women’s Tribune Centre is hosting a blog to track the currents and conversations between participants at a strategy session where women from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Burma, Nepal, the Netherlands and Canada will come together to share experiences on their work with implementing international policies like Security Council Resolution (SCR) 1325 in conflict-affected countries, and begin a strategic and practical ³grounding² in their work with SCR 1820.

This important resolution recognizes sexual violence as a tactic of war and links it with the maintenance of international peace and security.

The goal of the session is to develop country- specific strategies andexplore collective strategies for the full implementation of SCR 1820, and to examine which components of this resolution have relevance to each participant’s country.

The blog will include papers and documents on SCR 1820; photographs, video and mini-interviews with participants; day-to-day updates and blog posts from participants; and the strategies that emerge as the session unfolds.
