WILPF International Executive Committee Meeting 2001 reaffirms the resolution it adopted at its 26th International Congress concerning the establishment of an “Institute for Security Issues” within the Organization of Security and Co-operation in Europe. It suggests that all human experience, especially that of women, regarding conflict resolution, promotion and protection of human rights, early warning and environmental protection — both in theory and practice — should be utilized.
