WOMEN'S CONFERENCE FOR PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST
Middle East annual women leadership conference
A yearly Conference bringing together concerned women leaders coming from the Middle East and North Africa regions, Europe, and beyond. Participants include government leaders, NGO presidents, academics and social activists. Although peace issues are different for each country, the women participants always have a strong motivation to bring peace acknowledging the issues of their neighbouring countries. The workings of the Conference usually conclude in a Statement or Declaration to be taken to the UN Agencies and to the relevant Government authorities of the participants’ countries.
Sponsored by the Foreign Missions’ Office of WFWP Japan, this Conference has been held every year since 1997, in various countries of the Middle East and at the UN offices of Geneva and Vienna. It was forced to go online during the Covid pandemic.
