Democratic transformations, Kurdish women and regional conflict:
Lessons from Rojava and beyond
University of Greenwich, King William Court, Lecture Theatre KW002
Saturday, 10 December 2016: 9.30am – 6.30pm
Against a background of conflict and repression in the Middle East, Kurds in four countries (Iraq, Iran, Syrian and Turkey) are asserting their political and cultural rights and transforming both themselves and the countries they live in. They pursue a democratic, secular and gender-equal political project in which women play a crucial role. The aim of this workshop and roundtable discussion is to share research findings on the unfolding experience and its implications for global and regional democracy, human rights, gender equality and security.
The event is jointly organised by the Greenwich Political Economy Research Centre (GPERC) and Peace in Kurdistan – Women Alliance for Kurdistan, Iraq and Syria.
