Women’s economic inclusion is central to realising women’s rights, gender equality, and the meaningful participation of women in peace and transition processes. In this Virtual Brown Bag Lunch, we will examine the role of business in strengthening women’s economic inclusion and their contributions to peace. We will also reflect on how the European Union may ensure that its trade and development policies include business in a way that promotes inclusive societies, especially in fragile and conflict-affected situations.
Dr Christina Bache is a Visiting Fellow at London School of Economics and Political Science IDEAS. She will present her research on the intersectionality of business and the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, focusing in particular on highlighting ways to strengthen women’s economic inclusion in Syria’s post-war recovery.
