As part of its work in supporting and empowering women peacebuilders to actively engage in dialogue, peacebuilding and political processes that promote peace, the Peace Book Club provides space for collective learning, reflection and conversation amongst participants.

The Peace Book Club takes place online on the last Tuesday of every month at 1pm. If you would like to take part in this event or for more information about the Glencree All-Island Women’s Peacebuilding Network,  please email:

About the Glencree Women’s Peacebuilding Programme

This event is an initiative of the Glencree Women’s Leadership Programme. This programme aims to support and empower women on the island of Ireland who have experience of political conflict/violence to become active leaders in the political processes that promote peacebuilding. Central to our work in this area is the Glencree All-Island Women’s Peacebuilding Network for women who have been impacted by political conflict or violence to connect in a safe-space. Our network is open to women across generations, communities, cultures and ethnicities who would like to build relationships and share their experiences in peacebuilding and conflict transformation with other women in this space. Network members can also take part in our events and activities designed to support women in having their voices heard in policy conversations and peacebuilding processes relevant to women.
