Add to Calendar 11/20/2019 16:00 11/20/2019 18:00 America/New_York Consortium on Gender, Security & Human Rights: Why We Need a Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace and a Sustainable Planet The final Fall 2019 Speaker Series event will be presented by the Consortium's Director, Dr. Carol Cohn. https://genderandsecurity.org/events-news/speaker-series [email protected] Location: Campus Center, 3rd Floor, Room 3540, UMass Boston MM/DD/YYYY

Western peacebuilding models repeatedly fail to bring sustainable peace. And our dominant economic models, with their overwhelmingly extractive stance toward both people and the planet, have left us careening toward climate catastrophe. Major paradigm shifts are urgently needed; this talk will argue that feminist analysis can and must be a key to making those shifts. 
 
Support for the Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace project comes from the Compton Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. This event is being cosponsored by UMass Boston CLA Dean's Office; Anthropology Dept; Conflict Resolution, Human Security and Global Governance Dept; History Dept; Political Science Dept; Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Dept; Human Rights Minor; the Honors College; the School for Global Inclusion and Social Development; and the John W.
