Breakfast meeting: “Protecting Civic Space: Canada’s Feminist Approach”

 

Global Focus and the Embassy of Canada to Denmark are excited to host a breakfast meeting on Friday, 23rd November, to discuss how Canada is engaging globally to enhance civic space as part of its Feminist International Policy.

 

The Ambassador of Canada to Denmark, Emi Furuya, will speak about Canada’s feminist international policy, including Canada’s approach to defending human rights defenders, creating civic space and working with civil society under Canada’s National Action Plan on Women Peace and Security (2017-2022). The Ambassador will be joined by Sarah Tuckey, a leading member of the Canadian Women, Peace and Security Network. Ms Tuckey will speak about how Canadian civil society has engaged with the Government of Canada on UN Resolution 1325 (Women, Peace and Security), the role of civil society within Canada’s National Action Plan, and how they are holding the Government of Canada to account.

 

After the presentations and a formal Q/A session, there will be an interactive discussion moderated by Sara Katrine Brandt, Civil Society Advisor at Global Focus.
