Peace Messengers - A Celebration of Women's Work for Peace and Justice

In 2005, a Swiss initiative saw the creation of the 1,000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize Project. This illuminating project draws attention to the commitment of women working for peace and justice around the globe.

The panel of speakers will include:

Stella Cornelius AO OBE - founder of the Conflict Resolution Network and one of the six Australian women named among the 1,000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize

Professor Larissa Behrendt - Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning, UTS

Nasima Rahmani - UNIFEM Peace Scholar from Afghanistan

These wonderful women will reflect on their experiences and their work to advance peace and justice at a local, national and international level in conversation with Martine Letts , Deputy Director of the Lowy Institute for International Policy

This event will be based on the premise of the 1,000 Nobel Peace Women project that began in 2003, under the conviction that the commitment of women working for peace should finally be acknowledged and made publicly known.

This project began as a Swiss initiative, but became a project supported globally including various United Nations agencies.
