Keeping the Faith in Sustainable Peace - Women of faith as agents of transformation
20 Sep 2018 -  High-level meeting on the role of women of faith in peace building, bringing women of faith working towards peace and reconciliation in conflict situations together with UN diplomats and national policymakers to show how women of faith have helped resolve conflict and build peace in societies around the world, and how the international community can honour and support their efforts.

In conflicts where religion is manipulated for violence, women are often portrayed solely as victims. Far less attention is paid to the immense positive contributions of leaders of religious communities, which include many women, to conflict resolution and mitigation. Women of faith have been instrumental in building and rebuilding interfaith cooperation in their communities in many countries around the world, including in Bosnia, the Central African Republic, Colombia, and Syria.
