Feminism and Development: How can women get involved with peace negotiations?

Marnie speaks with Andrea Filippi who works for PeaceWomen Across the Globe. The organisation was launched in 2005 and is committed to the active participation of women in peace processes and to a peaceful and secure world for all. In this episode we discuss their projects in Palestine and Ukraine as well as looking at their campaigns in their home country Switzerland. We debate the tensions present in feminist thought in the area of development and methods of aiding women toward achieving their goals whilst remaining vigilant of interventionism. Andrea would like to recommend al-Shabaka, a fantastic organisation, that is interesting for anyone who wants to learn more about Palestinian perspectives
