Hosted by Ursula Plassnik, Federal Minister for European and International Affairs of the Republic of Austria, an international conference took place on May 30-31. The core message of this conference was: "Violence must be countered by dialogue - Keeping space for dialogue open".
The Conference was an internationally unprecedented attempt to gather women in leading political positions from the Middle East and other conflict areas at a Round Table and to have them engage in a dialogue about possibilities of conflict resolution and peace building in the Middle East.
Objective as much as result of the conference were the presence of women in decision making positions and women experts from media, economy, education, and civil society and their direct exchange and discussion.
Currently on the Austrian and international level concrete follow up activities are in planning stage. For further details, please, refer to the attached conference brochure.
