Goals and Approaches
The activities of PeaceWomen Across the Globe PWAG focus on strengthening links between women peace activists, supporting their work by providing them with practical tools, and making their commitment visible. The PWAG projects, campaigns and publications pursue the main goals.
- PROMOTING THE PARTICIPATION OF WOMEN
Goal: Women will become decision-makers on all levels of society and politics.
In particular, they will be actively involved in efforts to protect or restore peace and the rule of law.
Approach: In order to strengthen the participation of women, PWAG initiate and coordinate networks that enable peace activists to share their experiences with each other and conduct projects aimed at developing prospects for sustainable peace, like the Women's PeaceTables programe.
- ENCOURAGING WOMEN TO GET INVOLVED IN PEACE WORK
Goal: Women's peace work will be well documented and accessible to a wide audience.
Potential female peace activists will be motivated by good examples. Giving visibility to women's peace work can initiative positive chain reactions.
Approach: By focusing our reporting and documentation on what women have achieved and on the peacebuilding developments initiated by women, women all over the world are encouraged to get involved in political and social processes. The work of the 1000 PeaceWomen and of a new generation of dedicated women in our network are our inspiration.
We use the following means to strengthen women peace activists and to make their work visible: the print and electronic newsletters, which are published several times a year; the annual report; traveling exhibitions; and social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
