" Working for Justice and Peace is a Question of Balance."

Creation of Women Peace Committees

Posted in Promoting the Participation of Grassroots Women in Peace Building Processes in the Communities of Bali/Bawock and Balikumbat/Babmbalang (2013-2015).


Within the framework of this project, the Justice and Peace Commission has created Women Peace Committees in all four target communities bringing the total number to 20 Women Peace Committees with an  average number of 25 women per committee.

The Women Peace Committees act as:

  1. Promoters of peace in their communities
  2. Mediators
  3. Informants to authorities from early warning signals perceived
  4. Participants in decision making in their communities, pushing forward the view and voice of women
