VIDEO – “Inclusive Security: Stop a War and Thwart the Next”
From Colombia to Syria, women are at the frontlines of preventing conflict, negotiating ceasefires, and helping their countries rebuild after war. Defying death threats and armed groups, they are bringing much-needed security to their communities.
For the 18th annual forum in this “Inclusive Security” series, senior government and civil society leaders described how they forge peace in volatile parts of the world. Five women leaders took the stage and captivated a full-house audience for the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government—often called the most prestigious speaking platform at Harvard. Our founder, Ambassador Swanee Hunt, moderated the discussion with these leading decision-makers from conflict-torn countries.
- Mariam Jalabi, Syria
- Palwasha Kakar, Afghanistan
- Alice Nderitu, Kenya
- Israela Oron, Israel
- Rosa Emilia Salamanca, Colombia
