The event "Gender, Power, and Arms: The Interlinkages between International Armament, Masculinities, and Discrimination" takes place in Berlin on 24.02.2020

Fully autonomous weapons are being developed in the context of established norms of gender and power. Norms that over decades have shaped an international security architecture, in which states’ power is being defined by their ability (and willingness) to display and use military power. The Campaign to Stop Killer Robots as well as the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons are both international civil society- led campaigns challenging these norms of gender and power.

Together with the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons and the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation, and on behalf of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, CFFP hosted a discussion on the interlinkages of international armament, discrimination, masculinities and gender inequality.
