Women's Leadership in Peace and Security

January 30, 2015

Edmonton, Canada. Frmr PM Campbell spoke at the University of Alberta's 2015 International Week about “Women's Leadership in Peace and Security”.

MORE ABOUT HER REMARKS: Security cannot be effectively discussed or achieved with the involvement of only half of humanity. This statement may sound like common sense, but it was the call to action from the International Women Leaders Global Security Summit co-chaired by Kim Campbell in 2007. Unfortunately, even today it is the norm for women to be excluded from efforts to address conflicts, as well as the essential task of building stability and peace following them. Ms. Campbell will draw on her experience leading a project that brought women from the Horn of Africa together to develop their individual and collective capacity to address security and peace issues.  As stated in that project, "Women represent a crucial resource for peace and stability", therefore issues of peace building cannot be separated from those of women´s political and economic empowerment and sustainable development.
