Human Rights and Security Sector Governance: Conference 8
On the occasion of the 8th Conference held in the framework of DCAF’s ongoing cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands’ it has been announced that an additional event will be held in October. The event will serve as a wrap-up session to the project where DCAF and the Razumkov Centre will present key conclusions and recommendations.
The 8th conference had a special focus on Gender among other HR-related challenges in Ukraine. It has been noted that further engagement in this area is needed from all the relevant stakeholders, especially in terms of encouraging active participation of women in this and other civil society events.
As a result of the working groups, the conclusions and recommendations of last years’ conference on Civil Society (held in March 2016) touching upon similar issues have been revisited. It has been noted that some of the already outlined issues remain a year later and that further persistence in building and coordinating civil society and the media is necessary.
