This was shown in their statement which is “it is time to recognize the valuable but often overlooked role that women play in ending and preventing conflict”.

Are you a woman whose role and dignity are recognized by people around you? Or you want to be recognized by your society and the world at large in the role you play as a woman in conflict resolution? Then consider the U.S. Institute of Peace as a means to achieve your aim.

USIP’s Women Building Peace Award represents the institute’s commitment towards highlighting and recognizing the vital role played by individual women.  This recognition is given to women who are working every day to achieve peace in fragile or conflict-affected countries or regions.
