In advance of WILPF’s Triennial Congress, WILPF will host a Feminist Peace Movement in Africa Forum on 18 August 2018 at the University of Ghana in Accra. The Forum is aimed at strengthening linkages within and across the African feminist movement for peace and non-violence, and will facilitate a variety of political discussions to mobilise action for change.

Discussions will explore and document  the historic and current realities of  women  working for  peace in Africa. It will include plenaries as well as cross-learning workshops including on root causes of violence, mediation, masculinities, and feminist political economies, and will mobilise strategic action for addressing challenges, learning from achievements of the strong and innovative work in Africa. The Forum is open and available to the public.

Join us in Ghana!
