The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) were pleased to host the 2023 ECOWAS-UNIDIR Regional Seminar on Disarmament and Arms Control.
This provided an opportunity to engage a knowledgeable audience in discussions on gender and arms control and to exchange ideas on how gender perspectives can inform arms control policies in West Africa.
In particular, participants shared research findings and best practices covering issues such as: gender-sensitive SALW control, gender and diversity mainstreaming in mine action, women’s participation and leadership in arms control, among others.
