Project Partners

As an internationally active network organisation, we implement our projects and programmes in close cooperation with a variety of different local organisations – from grassroots organisations to nationally active non-governmental organisations. We are united by the feminist vision of a peaceful world in which everyone feels safe.

Participation in peace processes

Women are particularly affected by armed conflict and violence. Yet they are often excluded from formal peace or transitional justice processes after a conflict has been resolved, even though they are strongly represented in civil society organisations that are committed to peaceful coexistence. Together with our partners, we are committed to ensuring women’s equal participation in shaping peace and conflict transformation processes.

Women demand participation in transitional justice

Women were directly affected by the ten-year conflict in Nepal, many as combatants. Yet, they were effectively excluded from the peace negotiations and their access to transitional justice processes remains severely restricted. With our project, we support conflict-affected women in healing their war traumas, building local networks and gaining access to political decision-makers.

Three countries, four women and a cross-border solidarity

In the fall of 2019, PeaceWomen Across the Globe brought together peace activists from Colombia, Nepal and the Philippines to share their experiences of armed conflict and of the subsequent peace efforts in their countries and to benefit from each other's expertise. As different as the political contexts are, the women found many similarities. The solidarity they felt at the meeting gives them the strength to continue their often arduous peace work.

Women's Peace Table Nepal

Film

A short film about a participant of a Women's Peace Table in Nepal, whose husband was disappeared during that country's decade-long armed conflict. We support our partner Nagarik Aawaz in using Women's Peace Tables as a means to address the long-term reparative needs of conflict-affected women and to localize transitional justice in the local communities.
