On the occasion of International Women’s Day Berlin – 8 March, 2019.

CEO Jean-Christophe Bas of the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute (DOC), welcomes the Federal State of Berlin’s newly inaugurated public holiday for International Women’s Day.
The 108th International Women’s Day, which takes place annually on the 8th of March, celebrates the economic, social, cultural, and political achievements of women around the world. The DOC is profoundly committed to promoting the role of women in dialogue and peace. In previous years, the Rhodes Forum has been honoured to host numerous prominent female leaders and change-makers to share their experiences and insights. Previous speakers have included Samia Nkrumah, president of the Kwame Nkrumah Pan-African Centre, Eva Kaili, Member of the European Parliament, and Robin Wright, senior fellow at the US Institute of Peace.
The DOC is proud that 55% of its staff are women, therefore playing a decisive role in the institute.
The DOC wishes you a pleasant holiday weekend.
