So, here we are on the second and longest (though not boring at all) day of the conference. After a short welcome from Gitti Henschel, the Director of the Gunda Werner Institute, who suffered a coup d’etat in hands of the translating equipment and managed to still maintain grace under fire while holding her presentation in english is off to the workshops. The workshops are small work teams in which the different strategies –and challenges- for implementation of the UNSCR 1325 in specific countries are going to be discussed. One gets the feeling that the most visited will be the Israel/Palestine and Liberia ones, due to the introduction to them we got yesterday during the panel discussions.
I am attending the Iraq one, so expect a full review on that later.
