Brought to you by LSE, the Centre for Women, Peace and Security, ICAN and CFFP; the online event "Elite Bargains and Political Expendiency: SAcrificing Women's Lives in the Name of Security" takes place online on 22.03.2021

Along with ICAN and the LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security, CFFP co-hosted the third session of the Coming of Age of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda webinar series. In this discussion, we discussed what happens when diplomats and politicians forge hasty elite bargains, leaving local communities and peacekeepers at the frontlines to face the consequences of their deals. The discussion reflected on the gap between the rhetoric of inclusion and increased calls for the recognition and protection of peacebuilders and the reality of power politics, where ultimately the ‘deal’ leads not to peace but to perpetual violence.
