Join The Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts and International House for a discussion featuring Amal Hamada, Assistant Professor of Political Science and Gender Studies in the Faculty of Economics and Political Science, Cairo University, Egypt. Photos of mothers grieving their children are what first come to mind when thinking about mothers in conflict. How can we see women within their traditional role as mothers in a different light when it comes to counterterrorism? What does the literature in gender and strategic studies, as well as lived experiences of women, tell us about reconciliation and building peace?

Free and open to the public. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
