The Women PeaceMakers Program documents the stories and best practices of international women leaders who are involved in human rights and peacemaking efforts in their home countries. Women on the frontlines of efforts to end violence and secure a just peace seldom record their experiences, activities and insights as generally there is no time, or, perhaps, no formal education that would help women record their work. The Women PeaceMakers Program offers an opportunity for women leaders who want to document, share and build upon their unique peacemaking stories.
The University of San Diego was given a 2011 Senator Paul Simon Spotlight Award from NAFSA: Association of International Educators, in recognition of the IPJ's Women PeaceMakers Program.
