The MWMN Secretariat, undertakes the coordination of the Global Alliance of Regional Women Mediator Networks (GA) until the end of 2020 under the responsibility of WIIS Italy.

The Global Alliance was launched in 2019 as the collaborative initiative of several regional women mediators networks established in recent years – namely the Network of African Women in Conflict Prevention and Mediation (FemWise-Africa), the Arab Women Mediators Network – League of Arab States, the Mediterranean Women Mediators Network, the Nordic Women Mediators and the Women Mediators across the Commonwealth – in order to ensure strengthened complementarity, cooperation and coordination among the networks, as well as embodying a collective voice to amplify their common goals, all the while maintaining their respective independence and characteristics.

A series of high-level events will be organized between the end of September (1st Anniversary of the GA’s launch) and October (20th Anniversary of the UNSC Resolution 1325 adoption), in collaboration with one of the GA’s operational partners, the Crisis Management Initiative (Finland).
