Total and universal disarmament is one of the founding goals of WILPF, and our Disarmament Programme promotes human security and stigmatises the very concept of ‘military security’. The Programme provides information and research, conducts advocacy, and brings a gender perspective in war.
Women, Peace and Security
WILPF’s Women, Peace and Security Programme ensure that international peace and security efforts work for women. The Programme, also known under the name PeaceWomen, promotes feminist perspectives on peace and security.
The Human Rights Programme supports local women human rights defenders’ engagement with international human rights bodies, and advocates for respect and protection of human rights in order to achieve peace.
WILPF’s Crisis Response Programme supports women in fragile and conflict-affected countries in their efforts to organise, strategise, and influence. The Programme strengthens engagement with international actors and supports knowledge exchange between women-led local civil society.
