Development, Environment and Peace Nexus (DEEPEN): Peace Making in Borderlands

Conference

3 - 5 Dec 2020, Online and in Cheorwon, Republic of Korea

Development, Environment and Peace Nexus (DEEPEN): Peace Making in Borderlands

Violence and conflict in borderlands are inseparable from environmental degradation and hinder social development. This close connection, however, also provides the potential to reverse the vicious cycle of conflict, disruption to nature and social exclusion and move, through a holistic transformative approach, toward a virtuous cycle of peace, ecological integrity and inclusive development. At this uniquely multidisciplinary conference, speakers will explore the complex relationships between development, environment and peace in borderlands, challenging conventional approaches and introducing innovative theories and practices for sustainable and peaceful development.

Gender and Just Transitions

How do women's lived experiences differ from men's in the male-dominated industries that receive much of the attention in current just transition debates? What would a gender just transition look like? Based on examples from the US, Europe and Africa, speakers at this webinar will delve into a debate about what kinds of just transitions hold the potential to achieve gender justice, and why changing the value of different kinds of work might be necessary in order to achieve low-carbon sustainable development. This is the third in the webinar series "Justice in Low-Carbon Transitions".
