The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) is an international coalition of over 100 women’s rights organizations and civil society groups from around the world focused on women’s rights, youth rights, gender equality, peacebuilding, conflict resolution and conflict prevention.


The GNWP was founded in 2010 by Maria Victoria “Mavic'' Cabrera Balleza. Its founding vision was to build an equal and peaceful world in which women’s and girls’ rights are promoted and protected, and they are recognized as peacebuilders and decision-makers.


The GNWP’s mission is to promote sustainable and inclusive peace by empowering women and young women and amplifying their voices. Through its programs, workshops and resources, the organization seeks to:

  • bridge the gap between global policies on the Women, Peace and Security Agenda (WPS) and actions on the ground.
  • support meaningful participation and recognition of women in decision-making processes.

Organizational Structure[edit]

The GNWP is led by Mavic Cabrera Balleza, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer. The organization is managed, staffed, and supervised by experts in the fields of women’s rights advocacy, peacebuilding, conflict prevention and sustainable peace.[1]. Its governance structure currently includes: a board of directors representing six different countries; a leadership team; and an international advisory council consisting of experts from the United States, Indonesia, Colombia, and the Philippines, including Betty Reardon, Miriam Coronel-Ferrer, Dewi Suralaga, Maria Paulina Davila, and four-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Cora Weiss. 

Headquartered in New York City, the GNWP works to implement United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, the supporting resolutions on Women, Peace and Security, UN Security Council Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security, and its supporting resolutions[2]. The organization collaborates with numerous local women’s rights organizations, youth rights groups, indigenous leaders, journalists, academics, security sector, local, and national governments, the United Nations, and regional organizations, including the Association for SouthEast Asian Nations and the Organization for Security Cooperation in Europe.

  4. Note that articles on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view and must be verifiable in published third-party sources; consider whether, copyright issues aside, your text is appropriate for inclusion in Wikipedia.
You can demonstrate that this text is in the public domain, or is already under a license suitable for Wikipedia. Click "Show" to see how.
Explain this on this article's discussion page, with reference to evidence. Wikipedia:Public domain and Wikipedia:Compatibly licensed may assist in determining the status.

Your rewrite should be placed on this page, where it will be available for an administrator or clerk to review it at the end of the listing period. Follow this link to create the temporary subpage.

  • Simply modifying copyrighted text is not sufficient to avoid copyright infringement—if the original copyright violation cannot be cleanly removed or the article reverted to a prior version, it is best to write the article from scratch. (See Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing.)
  • For license compliance, any content used from the original article must be properly attributed; if you use content from the original, please leave a note at the top of your rewrite saying as much. You may duplicate non-infringing text that you had contributed yourself.
  • It is always a good idea, if rewriting, to identify the point where the copyrighted content was imported to Wikipedia and to check to make sure that the contributor did not add content imported from other sources. When closing investigations, clerks and administrators may find other copyright problems than the one identified. If this material is in the proposed rewrite and cannot be easily removed, the rewrite may not be usable.
State that you have created a rewrite on this article's discussion page.
