Mapping the Intersections of Peace and Security and Human Rights Work

Hosted by Philanthropy New York, 1500 Broadway, 7th Floor, New York, NY

The relationship between peace and security and human rights is complex. The protection and promulgation of human rights are essential to creating peaceful societies; yet, when peace is threatened, human rights are often sacrificed in the name of security.

Where do these fields intersect and where do they diverge? Join the Human Rights Funders Network, the Peace and Security Funders Group, and Foundation Center for a conversation around funding for human rights and peace and security. Vis-à-vis mappings of our respective fields (Advancing Human Rights and the Peace and Security Funding Index), we will unpack the complex relationship between human rights and peace and security, and facilitate a roundtable discussion on what it means for funders in this brown bag lunch. Please bring your own lunch.
