The Women’s Dialogue

Please scroll down to the bottom to download the invitation

The nuclear powers India and Pakistan are of highest global concern. In recent years both countries have repeatedly been on the brink of war; the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai only intensified the critical situation. But we also need to understand that the two counties have much in common: their historical und cultural legacy connects the people over and beyond national borders and political frontlines.
Women from both sides are seizing this reality in order to jumpstart a new Women without Borders/SAVE dialogue to anchor the renewed political efforts to reduce tensions between India and Pakistan in their respective societies.

The Austrian Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection is supporting this project, thus underscoring Austria’s international role as a platform for dialogue and international understanding.
Extremism is not an isolated, national problem; counter-efforts must be supported at the international level. The fight against fear, hate and stigmatization of “the other” is an important building block in the international security structures. Women are increasingly dedicated to making a contribution to strategic security efforts—their voices must be heard and actively included, as they are uniquely positioned at the intersection of the public and private spheres.

Women without Borders/SAVE and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection invite you to attend
