The Intergenerational Fellowship on Women, Peace and Security in South Central Europe, or Peace Fellowship, made possible by Voices Against Violence: The Gender-Based Violence Global Initiative, is a year-long program that supports emerging and established women leaders working to address gender-based violence (GBV) in the countries of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo and Serbia.
Through the Peace Fellowship, Vital Voices will advance women’s leadership at the intersection of GBV and Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) through capacity-building, peer-to-peer learning, and mentorship. The Peace Fellowship will also offer Fellows grant opportunities for projects that support and advance national and regional action plans related to GBV and WPS. Through this fully-funded fellowship, we aim to increase the capacity, decision-making power and effectiveness of women leaders working on GBV across generations and sectors, and equipping them with the tools they need to advance women’s rights through the Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) agenda.
Please note that the Peace Fellowship is an unpaid fellowship. However, if in-person activities take place, Vital Voices will pay for all costs related to these meetings (food, insurance, travel, and accommodation). The working languages of the Peace Fellowship will be Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian and Albanian. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided.
