Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom has been working with Syrian women since 2012, and more closely since the beginning of the “Women Organising for Change in Bosnia and Syria” program in June 2013.

The program aims at exchanging lessons and experiences between Syrian and Bosnian women, and strengthening capacities of Syrian and Bosnian women and civil society organisations.

An important milestone of this program is the joint conference in Bosnia that will be held during February 10th to 14th 2014. The conference will admit up to 25 Syrian and 50 Bosnian participants. It will discuss 5 major topics: 1-Access to Justice and Transitional Justice processes; 2-Peace negotiations and women in public life in the post-conflict society; 3-Refugees and the return process; 4-Economic and social rights; 5-Violence against Women.

WILPF International calls for applications from Syrian activists who work in one of the aforementioned 5 topics inside Syria or in the neighbouring counties.
