The Women PeaceMakers Program recommends a prospect for women privileged who want to deed, contribute to and put together upon their unique peacemaking stories. Women who took pains to terminate violent behavior and safe & sound a just peace rarely proof their occurrence, behavior and imminent as by and large there is no point in time or maybe rejection of recognized learning that would help them to witness their task. The Women PeaceMakers agenda manuscripts the stories and best carry out of international women leaders who are caught up in human rights and peacemaking pains in their home nations.
Peacemakers program is open to women who have been involved in peace processes and who have been active in efforts to secure a just peace, namely, through conflict resolution and civil society participation that is inclusive and honors human rights.
Four peacemakers are selected each year to participate in an eight-week residency at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice (IPJ), located on the University of San Diego campus in San Diego, California.
Women Peacemakers are paired with Peace Writers to document in written form their story of living in conflict and building peace in their communities and nations. Peace Writers interview their peacemakers daily and produce a document that includes narrative stories and complementary components, such as a historical summary of the conflict and a table of best practices in peace building as demonstrated by the work of the peacemaker.
