About the Project
The aim of the project is to hold PeaceTables in conflict or post-conflict areas, organized by women. In countries where there is an official peace table on the national level, our peace tables are organized parallel to these ongoing peace negotiations. The peace tables should offer a platform for women to speak about their role in conflict and peacebuilding, to raise awareness on the demands of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 and to pressure governments and the international community to finally implement the fundamental right of women to participate in official peacebuilding processes. Project Duration: Since 2015
Between September and November 2017, PWAG in collaboration with regional coordinators, supports the organisation of Women's PeaceTables in 30 different regions throughout the world: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Burma/Myanmar, Burundi, Colombia, DR Congo (South Kuvu and Nord-Kuvu), Fiji, Honduras, India (Kashmir and Manipur), Indonesia (East Sumba and Bali), Kenya, Laos, Mali (Bamako and Niono), Morocco, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Senegal, Sri Lanka (Nuwara Eliya and Trincomalee), Sudan, Switzerland and Vanuatu.
