Last week, Independent Diplomat facilitated a High-Level Dialogue in Brussels, bringing together 20 prominent Yemeni and Syrian political and civil society representatives to foster an exchange of expertise and experiences between women active in the Yemeni and Syrian peace processes.Hosted in partnership with the European External Action Service, the discussions culminated in a set of concrete recommendations to advance women’s roles on all issues and stages of peace processes, presented to EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini. The dialogue took place ahead of the launch of the new EU Strategic Approach to Women, Peace and Security, furthering the way for initiatives supporting the exchange of experiences, and best practices between women practitioners and mediators.
