Episode 20: Peace Exchange Participants
2018 Aug 2415m 59s
Shalini Medepalli, a Research and Advocacy Intern, talks to Tea Jaliashvili (from Georgia) and Maria Dmytrieva (from Ukraine) about their role as Peace Exchange Participants, the importance of Localization and what next steps need to be taken to successfully implement UNSCR 1325. Localization is key to GNWP's implementation of UNSCR 1325, as the innovative strategy of convening local actors to create local action plans allows for the alignment of national policies at the grassroots level. This allows for local communities to gain ownership in regards to women, peace and security. As said by Maria, "localization gives every group of women the tools and the knowledge to make their needs known and taken into account." The podcast takes place in Moldova, so the importance of Media, NAP and Localization workshops are also discussed. Maria is able to express the success of the workshops by talking about the aftermath of the workshops in Ukraine. "People from other Oblasts [regions] keep calling and asking for us to hold similar [localization] events at their Oblast centers. Everybody wants in, and everyone wants to know what it is and how to use it".
