WikiPeaceWomen

The aim of the WikiPeaceWomen project is to expand the bodies of knowledge and skills of not only the Thousand PeaceWomen nominated in 2005 for the Nobel Peace Prize, but those of a Million PeaceWomen working in all fields of human security, conflict resolution, ecological security, environmental justice, health, education, legislation, and others. While their work will be made visible and recognized, their expertise will also be disseminated outside their current spheres of influence, so as to contribute to different levels ranging from the communities to the global.

Dialogue forums to promote the process of democratization

In this project, we support women in Egypt in their aspirations for political participation.

The inclusion of experiences of PeaceWomen from other conflict contexts is a key component of the forums. Project duration: 2012 - 2016

The consequences of human rights violations against women are being made public and everything is being done to ensure that violence against women stops. Project duration: 2013 – 2015

Sustainable development and conflict prevention

Using successful projects as examples, we show that women can play a significant role in preventing or mitigating conflicts through their endeavors to safeguard livelihoods and natural resources. In geographical terms, we are currently concentrating on China and Mexico, with the focus here also on the idea of building up a network of women peace activists.  Project duration: since 2008
