RSS TO HOST PANEL DISCUSSION IN BARBADOS

Regional Security System | Thurs 9 May 19

The Regional Security System (RSS) will host a Panel Discussion under the theme Mainstreaming Gender in National Security Frameworks, on Tuesday, May 14, in Seminar Room No. 1, Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall, St. Michael, from 2:00 p.m.

Members of the public and stakeholders are invited to attend as the discussion intends to increase awareness and stimulate discussion on the impact of gender-based initiatives on solutions and responses to security threats, while investigating the varying ways in which security threats impact different genders.

The initiative is part of a series of discussions which are being held under the RSS’ 10th European Development Fund Programme, and are designed to highlight issues of crime and security in the Caribbean. They also seek to garner public support for law enforcement initiatives and help persons to better understand the social and criminal aspects that contribute to a criminogenic environment.

To date, discussions have been staged in Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis and St. Lucia, and panellists have presented on a range of matters, including the impact of gang subculture and countering threat networks in RSS Member States.
