Women in Peace Processes
GWD, in partnership with the Institute for Inclusive Security, has been accepted into the CSO pre-qualified network of organizations for the Department of State's Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations on Peace Processes. Women play an integral role in ensuring the success peace agreements, and strong evidence shows that their inclusion has measurable positive effects on their durability. GWD and the Institute for Inclusive Security welcome the increasing recognition of women's importance on this vital front.
