Symposium at City University of New York- School of Law
 
Friday, March 6, 2015

 

This Symposium offers a unique and timely opportunity to engage with locally-based Iraqi and Syrian women activists working across sectarian lines, as well as international experts to address the crisis of women’s human rights in areas controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Participants will explore the relationship between gender-based abuses under ISIS and State-sanctioned discrimination and violence against women, highlighting lessons for policymakers and women’s rights advocates in diverse contexts of political and armed conflict.
