War and Peace in the eyes of women 

The 4th International Conference initiated by the “Democracy Today” NGO and held on September 8-9th  in Yerevan  was a joint platform for Caucasian women, who are involved in peace making and the defense of human rights. It is a platform through which they exchange experience, encourage and inspire each other.

 

 

The conference is traditionally held under the slogan  “Women for peace and stability in the Caucasus: Peace begins in your home”. Each year a theme is changing, driven by the situation in the world and the most pressing problems. This year’s theme was “War and Peace economy and their impact on women’s daily lives”.
