Glencree All-Island Women’s Peacebuilding Network aims to support women impacted by political conflict or violence to become actors in post-conflict peacebuilding and transformation on the island of Ireland or in their conflict affected country of origin.

The Network engages women leaders from cross-community backgrounds in Northern Ireland, cross-border rural regions, and women with experience of political conflict/violence in their country of origin who now live on the island of Ireland.

As members of the network, women from across the generations, communities, cultures and ethnicities have the opportunity to connect, build relationships and share their experiences and learnings in peacebuilding and conflict transformation with other women in a safe-space.

Members are encouraged and supported to engage in policy conversations related to women’s needs and rights in the context of peacebuilding and post conflict transformation and become actors in peacebuilding processes and negotiations.

Network members can also take part in Glencree events and activities designed to support women in having their voices heard in policy conversations and peacebuilding processes relevant to women. #WomensVoices
