Women Peace and Security Collective (Colectivo de Mujeres, Paz y Seguridad)

The Women Peace and Security Collective is an initiative of dialogue and reconciliation between women with different social, economic and political backgrounds, including human right activists, academics, former combatants, members of the security sector, indigenous and black women, journalists and business women. All members share a common commitment for a better future for all in Colombia. They have captured their thinking and appeal in an Ethical Pact for Peace.
