The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination co-sponsored a lecture and discussion, "Women's Empowerment in South Sudan: Gender Responsive Peacekeeping in Practice," on Monday, March 4, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. at the UN North Lawn Building (CR D). The featured speaker was Hilde F. Johnson, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General and Head of the UN Mission in the Republic of South Sudan (UNMISS). Johnson discussed her responsibilities and experiences as UNMISS Head of Mission, and the importance of gender mainstreaming within UN missions for implementation of the UN's Women, Peace, and Security Agenda (WPS) on the ground. The session was a side event of the 57th Commission on the Status of Women, and is part of a series of lectures and panels on the UN's Women, Peace, and Security Agenda, organized by LISD's program on Women in the Global Community, the Permanent Mission of Liechtenstein to the United Nations, and the PeaceWomen Project of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.
