This Nobel Women's Initiative roundtable brings together women selected by the five women peace laureates leading the conference. Drawing on their experience and expertise from Iraq, Northern Ireland, the occupied territories and the US, Yanar Mohammed, Bronagh Hinds, Nadwar Sarandah, Antonia Juhasz and Valentine Moghadam discuss rebuilding peace from civil war, understanding conflict, learning to talk to the enemy, and - critically - how women made an essential difference in achieving the current settlement in Northern Ireland. Hear their analyses, strategies and hopes for redefining a concept of peace based in justice, human rights and inclusion.
