Power to Women in Peace Processes

Women's Organisations Cooperating in Realising Resolution 1325


Finding Pathways

02/05/2012 10:03

Operation 1325 have through our cooperation with women's organisations in Israel and Palestine arranged several bridge building conferences with the aim of creating platforms for discussion. "Finding Pathways" is the result of one of these conferences, which brought up challenges in cooperating across borders and methods for women can be developed into agents of peace.

From the discussions of the conference, six "jewels" were found, which are changes that are critical for women's participation for a sustainable peace. The six jewels are:

  • Training of women in feministic leadership
  • Creating mutual projects between women's organisations in Israel and Palestine
  • Developing networks between organisations and individuals
  • Arranging information sessions regarding conflict issues
  • Sharing of information between different peace actors
  • Creating opinion regarding women's role in a militaristic society
