Women for Peace and Participation (WPP) promotes the social and political inclusion of women and youth in peace-building processes at the grassroots, national and global levels. WPP, under the theme 'United Women for Peace' has developed a platform of women leaders from conflict zones, in the diaspora and refugee communities in UK, Europe and US with unique first-hand experience and skills of the local context as well as policies around Women, Peace and Security at the regional and global levels.
WPP also works directly with marginalised individuals in conflict-affected countries, and provides opportunities and platforms for women and young people to enable them participate in decision-making processes and policy debates. In addition to working directly with young people in countries, WPP also works with relevant diaspora and refugee youth to bridge the gap.
