The WILPF Academic Network is a think and action tank that advances feminist peace and challenges the traditional concept of security by mobilising a global network of academics, feminist thinkers and peace activists.
WILPF Academic Network provides an inclusive and collaborative space for various actors across different levels to come together, share findings and analysis and integrate their theoretical and personal knowledge and expertise to:
Inform WILPF advocacy and activism;
Strengthen and mobilise support for feminist security theory;
Build a cohesive forum that connects the public, activists, academia and policy-makers.
The WILPF Academic Network is comprised of university professors, doctoral students, and independent researchers.

The mission of the WILPF Academic Network is to support WILPF with accessible data and research; to be responsive to the research needs identified by country sections and other women’s groups; to communicate, support and collaborate with each other; to spread WILPF’s mission and introduce WILPF on campuses.
Guided by the belief that feminist research and the academia can improve peace activism and that the experiences from feminist peace movements can enhance scholarship and teaching, we envision a mutually beneficial relationship between research, activism and teaching. We aim at transforming these areas of work and our institutions in ways that support WILPF’s vision of a world free from violence.
