Letter to Federal Councillor on the Ukraine Conference 2023

Letter to Federal Councillor Cassis

On the start of the Ukraine Recovery Conference 2023, we ask the head of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs Ignazio Cassis in an open letter to what extent the commitments of the Women, Peace and Security agenda will be taken into account at the conference. We also express our regret that civil society, especially women's organisations, are not included in this important conference on the reconstruction of Ukraine.

Appeal for peace in Europe


We urge all states, military alliances and intergovernmental organizations to reduce troops and military build-up from 2022. As a feminist peace organization, we are convinced: demilitarization is a central prerequisite for real security for all.

Demands on the Swiss Federal Council and the international community

One year after the start of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, there are no signs of a ceasefire, let alone peace. Since 24 February 2022, more than 200,000 soldiers and, depending on the source, up to 50,000 civilians have lost their lives in the gruesome war. Every day the numbers rise and the suffering increases. On the anniversary of the attack, we are issuing a renewed appeal with a special focus on the participation and protection of women.
