About Us

Women’s International Peace Centre (The Centre), formerly Isis-Women’s International Cross-Cultural Exchange (Isis-WICCE), is a feminist organization with a mission to ignite women’s leadership, amplify their voices and deepen their activism in re-creating peace.

The Centre started out in 1974 as Isis-WICCE, a global resource centre for women human rights defenders to document and disseminate women’s own experiences, concerns and ideas for ending gender inequality.  In 1994, we moved from Geneva to Uganda, carving out the niche of women, peace and security. The Centre uses its own WEAVE model to catalyze women’s power for peace by integrating research, documentation, holistic healing, skills and movement building as well as advocacy.

Women’s International Peace Centre (The Centre) works with partners in conflict-affected settings and with regional institutions in Africa and Asia to ensure that women not only powerfully contribute to peace building processes and results, but also transform these spaces to be more gender inclusive and gender responsive.
