6th Annual Texas Women, Peace, and Security Symposium
— 1325 + 20: Celebrating the Anniversary of 1325 and Looking Towards the Future. The Texas Symposium on Women, Peace, and Security is designed to bring together academics, practitioners, and policymakers who are interested in advancing the goals of UN Security Council Resolution 1325.
— Description : The Texas Symposium on Women, Peace, and Security is designed to bring together academics, practitioners, and policymakers who are interested in advancing the goals of UN Security Council Resolution 1325. The WPS agenda also suggests that national security and human security must proceed hand in hand for peace to be durable and just, including issues that some might see as normally within the scope of national security, such as education, health, and welfare. Women’s perspectives and voice on issues of national security has been sorely lacking, and this symposium is a contribution to the rectification of that deficiency. The Texas Symposium on WPS also aspires to showcase Texas-based scholarship, philanthropy, programming, and policy on these important issues.
— Information : October 31st, 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark resolution UNSCR 1325. In order to commemorate the past successes and acknowledge the future implications of this resolution, the 6th Annual Texas WPS Symposium will bring together internationally recognized policymakers, practitioners, and academics who have worked alongside UNSCR 1325 to ensure the increased participation of women in matters of national security. The symposium will be held on Zoom. Registered participants will be invited via Zoom link. Questions for the speakers will be moderated by Morgan Mitchell and can be emailed to her at during the panels.

Goi Peace Foundation Forum 2020
“Creating a Better World for Future Generations”
— As always when great collective changes are needed, everything starts with a personal change, an intimate mutation:
acting on ourselves to prepare to act in the world, so that it remains liveable for us.
We then discover that acting on ourselves is, in itself, an action on the world. ― Jacques Attali
— In 2020, the world was brought to a standstill, urgently prompting humanity to re-examine our ways of living and being. What kind of life do we want to live, and what kind of future society do we want to create?
— We invite you to take a deep dive into these pressing questions, together with this year’s Goi Peace Award Laureate, Dr. Jacques Attali. He will be joined by philosopher Dr. Hiroshi Tasaka for an insightful conversation bringing together wisdom from West and East.
— Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation available.
