Its 2019 establishment has offered a historic opportunity to create an inclusive space for connection and experience sharing between Regional Women Mediator Networks and identify women’s common aspiration and commitment to participate in and lead peace processes.

The Global Alliance brings together six networks: Nordic Women Mediators (NWM), African Network of Women in Conflict Prevention and Peace Mediation (FemWise-Africa), Mediterranean Women Mediators Network (MWMN), Women Mediators across the Commonwealth (WMC), Arab Women Mediators Network (AWMN), and the Southeast Asian Network of Women Peace Negotiators and Mediators (SEANWPNM).

The Global Alliance acts on the fundamental premise that women’s participation in peace processes and influence in peace and security is decisive, not only to ensure respect for women’s rights, but also to pave the way for inclusive societies that improve operational effectiveness, build resilience, prevent and resolve conflicts, and sustain peace.
