The International Gender Champions Disarmament Impact Group and the BWC Implementation Support Unit welcome you to an interactive discussion on the relevance of gender perspectives to the implementation of the Biological Weapons Convention.
The discussion will address recent initiatives to improve women’s meaningful participation in the BWC, as well as research on sex-specific and gendered impacts of biological weapons.
Panelists will take stock of how gender perspectives are already being incorporated into BWC discussions and, in view of the forthcoming Ninth BWC Review Conference, how they can be further promoted and strengthened in future BWC work programmes.
The event will also mark the launch of a new factsheet by the Disarmament Impact Group on “Gender and Biological Weapons”.
Wednesday 30 June, 13:00 - 14:15 CEST
