A seminar on UN SCR 1325 and the role of women in peacebuilding was held in Madrid (Spain) on February 2, 2010. Over 200 people attended the event, which explored the main achievements and challenges facing the implementation of the Resolution. It also analysed the Spanish and Swiss experiences in the implementation of National Action Plans. IANSA Women’s Network Coordinator, Sarah Masters, gave a presentation about the role of women in disarmament and security issues. The seminar was organised by CEIPAZ and the Swiss Embassy in Spain with the support of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation. (per IANSA Alerts).
