It was attended by Ambassadors, representatives of the International organizations, Mayors of the towns and cities where the participating NGOs are based, representatives of the BiH Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces as well as representatives of BiH and entity level governmental structures dealing with gender issues.
Major General Robert Brieger, Commander of EUFOR, who opened the Conference said:
“For me this issue is of particular significance and therefore I have put a clear emphasis on gender perspectives in Operation ALTHEA. We have aimed and continue to aim to achieve a greater sensitivity towards gender issues, in order to foster more balanced gender awareness throughout this beautiful country.”
All attendees considered the event to be a success and expressed their thanks to EUFOR for hosting the conference.
