We re very excited to invite you to the online event.

For the last year, CFFP has been guided by and working with a steering committee of Afghan women experts and human rights activists, with the goal of ensuring that their expertise, recommendations, and perspectives are placed at the centre of international and national policies. This has culminated in a list of demands as published in our policy brief “At the centre. Afghan. Women Experts’ Policy Demands”, and will now be launched as part of the online webinar launch event: ”At The Centre: Afghan Women Experts’ Policy Demands” on 29 March 2023, 3.00 – 4.00 pm CEST.

Updated list of speakers:

  • Mariam Safi – Peace practitioner and Founding Executive Director of the Organization for Policy Research & Development Studies (DROPS)
  • Manizha Wafeq – Co-founder and President of the Afghanistan Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry
  • Jacqueline O’Neill – Canada’s Ambassador for Women, Peace and Security
  • Hannah Neumann – Member of the European Parliament (Greens/EFA), Vice-Chair of the EP Subcommittee on Human Rights

  • Zahra Nader – Afghan-Canadian journalist and editor-in-chief of Zan Times, a media that covers human rights violations in Afghanistan with a focus on women, LGBTQI community and environmental issues.  

The discussion will be moderated by the amazing Nahid Shahalimi.

Together we work to centre the perspectives of Afghan women rights activists and experts in all policy discussions. Only when all foreign policies are informed by the impacted communities grounded in an intersectional understanding of human rights for all, will they contribute to a more just, equitable, and peaceful world.

Join us, and our excellent speakers for this crucial discussion.
