The Women Waging Peace Network

The Network was launched in 1999 by our Founder and Chair, Ambassador Swanee Hunt, to connect women peacemakers from conflict areas around the world with each other and with policy shapers. Members of the Network, all demonstrated leaders among women peacebuilders, are elected and appointed government officials, directors of non-governmental organizations and movements in civil society, scholars and educators, businesspeople, representatives of multilateral organizations, and journalists. With varied backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, they bring a vast array of expertise to the peacemaking process.

In December 2017, the Women Waging Peace Network moved to a new home—the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice (IPJ) at the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies, University of San Diego. We’ve established an innovative partnership in which the Kroc IPJ will offer opportunities to foster learning and strengthen members’ capacities, connect with each other, and integrate their leadership into other fields and movements.
