Call for Articles for the Feminist Peace Series Magazine 2nd Edition

Background

Women’s International Peace Centre (The Peace Centre) is a feminist organization with a mission to ignite women’s leadership, through amplifying women’s voices and deepening their activism to (re)create peace.   We are committed to making information available for women to influence decision-making in the peace process. Since 1996, The Peace Centre has researched and documented the critical yet often-neglected experiences and perspectives of women in conflict and post-conflict in Africa and Asia generating important data and information to influence policies and practice. We are committed to making information available for women to influence decision making in peace processes.

The Feminist Peace Series Magazine

The Feminist Peace Series was born out of the continuous inquiry into what Feminist Peace means in practice with the objective to showcase the different transformative approaches to peacebuilding. In the 1st Edition of the Feminist Peace Series, The Peace Centre shared various understandings of Feminist Peace with perspectives from practitioners, partners and colleagues in the field of peacebuilding. We hope that with the Feminist Peace Series, we will continue to build a community of diverse contributors and readers that value activism and that understand feminist perspectives on peacebuilding.

Themes

The 2nd Edition of the Feminist Peace Series Magazine will focus on the following;

  1. How women around the world are responding to the impact of COVID-19 and the measures taken (or not taken) by governments to stop the spread of the pandemic;
  2. The game changers necessary for real progress towards feminist peace from the perspective of women peacebuilders.
