Women in Security met in Warsaw: Bridging Borders across the V4 Countries

In April, the Casimir Pulaski Foundation organized a three-day event in Warsaw focusing on women in security, bringing together around 30 female experts from all V4 countries.

Our program commenced with a session on the implementation of the Women, Peace & Security Agenda in V4 countries, led by Professor Aleksandra Gasztold and Dr. Kornela Oblińska. We followed up on these debates on the second day during a meeting at the National Research Institute NASK, where we discussed Human-Centric Cyber Trends with Prof. Aleksandra Gasztold, Prof. Joanna Kołodziej, Ph.D. Agnieszka Wrońska, and Zuzanna Polak. After that, we visited the Police Headquarters’ Office of International Police Cooperation to explore women’s participation in peacekeeping missions. The busy day was concluded by an interesting guided tour in the Warsaw city centre.

On the final day, the participants visited the Center for Veterans of Peacekeeping Missions, where they also laid a wreath to commemorate those women and men who died during their duty. Last but not least, the programme finished by a debate with Ms. Irena Lichnerowicz-Augustyn, Director of the Diplomatic Protocol in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland and former Ambassador of Poland to Cyprus, to discuss diplomacy and diplomatic protocol in practice.

We express our sincere thanks to the Casimir Pulaski Foundation for welcoming usin Warsaw, as well as to our partner organizations: the Centre for Euro-Atlantic Integration and Democracy (Hungary), and the Research Centre of the Slovak Foreign Policy Association (Slovakia).

This project is co-financed by the Governments of the Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
