Inclusion of gender in the Colombian peace process - meeting with Victoria Sandino leading the gender commission from FARC-EP

On a very short notice, the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights has the pleasure of inviting you to a meeting with Victoria Sandino – leader of the sub commission on gender for FARC in the Colombian peace talks.

She will talk about the inclusion of gender in the peace talks and the meeting will have the form of a conversation.

The peace process between the Colombian Government and the FARC-EP provided a unique opportunity not only to reunite a society torn apart by conflict but also to build a more just peace that responds to needs and rights of both men and women. The establishment of a sub commission on gender as part of the formal peace architecture was an innovative instrument for gender inclusion and for holding the parties accountable. The sub commission was led by one representative from each party. Victoria Sandino led the sub commission on behalf of FARC-EP throughout the process.
