Phase II of National Consultation on Women, Peace, and Security

“Ensuring women’s participation in decision-making processes in post-conflict situations and peace building efforts, advocating for women’s active participation at all levels of the and educating younger generations on peace, Human Rights, conflict resolution and democracy practices” were among the most important priorities identified. This meeting aimed at integrating the outcomes and recommendations from Phase I of the national consultation meeting along with the outcomes highlighted in Geneva. More specifically, the meeting focused on identifying national priorities to form a framework to design a national action plan accordingly. It is to be noted that this meeting was a follow up on Phase I of the Lebanon national consultation process held on May 10, 2012. The report of the national consultation meeting was presented by the Lebanese Women Delegation at the 20th Session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva on June 22, 2012.
