The horrifying scope and magnitude of abuse in spite of good intentions of peacemakers and peacebuilders demands constant examination. The eruption of gender violence and the denial of human dignity to those caught in international struggles to end conflict and gain human rights are inexcusable. Human security must be achieved to bring the human community together to tackle the common problems that lie ahead for this small planet.

Successful strategies for overcoming cycles of conflict and exploitation will be illuminated and expanded in this international working conference. Delegates should be engaged in research, policymaking, peacbuilding and peacekeeping related to:

  • Ending cycles of conflict through gender inclusive peacebuilding.
  • Protecting civilians in armed conflict from violence, including sexual violence.
  • Enforcing justice over impunity at all stages of conflict transformation.


The conference fee, excluding travel and accommodations, is $180.00 general delegate, $100.00 NGO delegate from developing conflict country, and $60.00 student delegate. The fee includes two lunches, one dinner, two receptions, programs and informational materials, and daily transportation to and from hotels partners of the event. (A limited number of scholarships will be available for students serving as note-takers.)

  1. I am not going to be able to attend the conference. Just wanted to share my peace activism blog with fellow sisters.

    The real work of building peace is likely to happen through assertive peaceful communication within and beyond homes and women must step out to play a greater role in building the architecture of a culture, community and ultimately a civilization
    based on deep love of peace, life, and liberty for all.
