What is the Women PeaceMakers Program?

Made possible through a generous grant from the Fred J. Hansen Foundation, the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice's (IPJ) Women PeaceMakers Program invites four women from around the world who have been locally involved in human rights and peacemaking efforts. Women accepted into this program are seeking ways to further their peacemaking efforts in their home countries.

Women on the frontline of efforts to end violence and secure a just peace seldom record their experiences, activities, and insights as generally there is no time, or, perhaps, no formal education that would help women record their stories. The Women PeaceMakers Program is a selective program for leaders who want to document, share, and build upon their unique peacemaking stories. Selected peacemakers will receive round-trip airfare, housing, and a small stipend to cover expenses for the eight-week residency in San Diego, California.

The residency program will require the selected candidates to give presentations at the IPJ and in the San Diego community, and to participate in documenting their stories through writing and videotaping their reflections. Women PeaceMakers will participate in dialogue groups and workshops to exchange ideas and approaches to peacemaking and justice, increasing their capacity to further prepare them to participate in conflict resolution and peacebuilding efforts and in post-conflict decisions-making. The program will provide each peacemaker with an assistant writer and film assistant to document her story. Each peacemaker will receive a small stipend to cover expenses while in San Diego and living accommodations at the IPJ's Casa de la Paz will be provided.
