WOMEN’S WORLD MAGAZINE

Women’s International Peace Centre seeks expressions of Interest from dynamic and highly
skilled individuals to edit our 55th edition of Women’s World magazine, a publication that

Congo (DRC) and South Sudan.

B. Background
The Peace Centre started out in 1974 as Isis-Women’s International Cross Cultural Exchange
(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 Peace Centre uses its own WEAVE model to catalyse 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 Peace 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.
