Consultation on Strategic Mapping of Women’s Peace Activism in Sri Lanka

The Women and Media Collective undertook a Research Study to map Women’s Peace Activism in Sri Lanka for the strategic implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325. The study was conducted with the support from International Alert. The project involved identifying women’s groups and women’s peace initiatives in Sri Lanka, conducting a mapping of the selected group of women’s organizations/networks and peace initiatives in Sri Lanka, preparation of a report recording the findings and analysis of the mapping and conducting a stakeholder consultation to strategize on the use and implementation of Resolution 1325 in the context of the ongoing conflict, peace and security in Sri Lanka. The mapping was done with 17 organizations, including networks that have been involved in peace building work in Sri Lanka.
