International Peace Activities

For the time being, peace work is a particular challenge for civil-society actors. Not only wars but also food, climate, care, economic and financial crises in correspondence to the internationalisation of conflicts demand specific engagement and diverse knowledge and expertise. Women and womens' organisations have deserved in this area and they are a driving force behind many peace processes - unfortunately they receive far too little consideration. They are indispensable for a gender-equitable and sustainable peace policy.
