Geneva Peace Talks, A Gender Perspective

18 Dec 2017

The eighth round of the Geneva peace talks between the Syrian government and opposition parties under the auspices of the United Nations took place from 28 November to 15 December 2017. Only 3 women out of 23 representatives of the opposition delegation and 2 out of 12 representatives of the Syrian regime delegation participated in the peace talks. This was not a surprise since only 16 women out of 140 took part in the Riyadh-hosted Syrian opposition meeting on the 23rd of November 2017.
