Inclusive Security (formerly Women Waging Peace Network)
Inclusive Security’s bold goal is to change the international security paradigm. Sustainable peace is possible only when those who shape policy include women and other affected groups in the prevention and transformation of violent conflict. Guided by this belief and vision, Inclusive Security’s mission is to increase the participation of all stakeholders—particularly women—in preventing, resolving, and rebuilding after deadly conflicts. Inclusive Security includes 'The Women Waging Peace Network," a network of more than 2,000 women peacemakers from conflict areas around the world, ranging from Afghanistan to Congo, Lebanon to Liberia, Sri Lanka to Syria. The Network was launched in 1999 to connect these women with each other and with policy shapers.
