GNWP Receives Livia Foundation 2016 Award of Honor 

Livia Foundation Award

The Livia Foundation granted the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) its 2016 Award, saying that, “GNWP promotes something very important to the prevention of violent escalation and to peacebuilding, namely women’s participation. Only when women’s voices and perspectives are heard in peace negotiations and peacebuilding processes, a peace agreement can lead to genuine e-existence and reconciliation.” The Danish Livia foundation was “brought into the world to make visible the courageous and non-violent approach to conflicts in societies, which are being practiced every day everywhere on this planet, but even so often overlooked by the media.”
