European Council President Charles Michel will co-host a live talk on 'Women in Conflicts', together with UN Women and the Dr Denis Mukwege Foundation, featuring Nobel Prize winners, women rights activists, European and world leaders on Thursday 1 AM Pakistan time [10 PM Brussels time].

Though women are key to durable conflict prevention and resolution, they are largely excluded from matters of peace and security. This event aims at bringing the voices of women in conflicts to the fore.

Speakers at the event include Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Nadia Murad, actress and activist Kristen Bell as well as several politicians such as Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid or Irish Taoiseach Micheál Martin.

The event language will be English, with interpretation in French and Spanish available on YouTube (FR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZZXXQAFhyo ES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyBX4JpP27Y )
