Inequalities affecting women and girls, in all countries of the world, are now widely challenged. With the #metoo movement, global audiences came to realize that “we don’t know what we don’t know” and that transparency on statistical facts can be the first trigger to changing the way people think, act and respond to gender discrimination.

 

At the Paris Talks conference this year, we designed a special working group session dedicated mostly to participants that were unable to take part in the full Day conference.

 

Amazingly facilitated, managed and conducted by Miren Bengoa, the Executive Director at Fondation CHANEL, this session challenged participants to take their time to think about the underlying assumptions that build gender norms and show how transformative data can be when used to enlighten the debate.

When we think about conflict we may think of recent wars, genocide and social unrest in places like Syria, Iraq, Rwanda...or other distant countries and geopolitical situations far from occidental reach. But after brief reflection, you realize that conflict is not a one-dimensional distant phenomenon and that it has and does occur right next to us, in every community, city, and nation around the world. And though the type of conflict we may experience day-to-day is far from an active war zone, new threats are constantly emerging, and without the proper tools and strategies to confront them, our sense of peace remains fragile. Much more fragile than you think.

As its subtitle suggests, this publication brings forward innovative solutions to all these complex sources of conflict.
