Second Annual Tbilisi Women's International Conference (TWIC) will Take Place on 1 July

At the initiative and patronage of President Salome Zourabichvili, the second Annual Tbilisi Women's International Conference (TWIC) will take place on July 1st.

The conference will bring together women leaders from around the world to once again voice the message of conflicts, peace, security, and the European integration of Georgia.  

The President of Georgia will open the conference with a welcome address.

Marija Pejčinović Burić, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, and Nicola Beer, Member of the European Parliament, Vice-President, are visiting Tbilisi at the personal invitation of the President of Georgia and will participate in the high-level panel.

In the second part of the panel, Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Dr. Ouided Bouchamaoui and Dr. Ruth Mitchell will participate in the discussion.

Throughout the day, the conference will feature panels that will cover the most urgent topics for women including conflicts seen through women correspondents’ lenses, war stories told by women, Caspian and Black Sea connectivity, the role of women in protecting cultural heritage in conflict regions, women's role in governance during conflict and post-conflict periods.

The conference will once again send a strong message of support for the Ukrainian people, particularly for Ukrainian women. Because of its significant geopolitical location, the conference will also concentrate on the Caucasus region, its challenges, and security.

The concluding panel of the conference will be devoted to the meeting between President Salome Zourabichvili and the media and will be attended by Georgian and foreign journalists.

The inaugural conference, which was the first of its kind in the region, took place last year on June 17th and brought together women in politics, diplomacy, civil society, culture, business, media, sport, charity, and academia, as well as women who have lived through and experienced first-hand the tragedy of conflict.

TWIC is the initiative of President Salome Zourabichvili, the first woman president of Georgia, who views a greater involvement of women as key to addressing conflict resolution, both between states and within societies.

For the second time, the Administration of the President of Georgia works closely with the UN Office in Georgia to bring this initiative to life.
