The Institute on Gender, Law, and Transformative Peace reimagines policymaking from the perspective of social movements, bringing those most impacted by crisis and conflict into the policy development process.
The Institute serves as a hub for cross-sectoral, cross-movement, and transnational organizing, research, and scholarship. We work to advance the cutting edge of rights-based approaches to national and international law and policy, including peace and transitional justice processes, reconstruction, and human rights mechanisms.
We promote the leadership of women and LGBTQI+ persons who face interlocking forms of discrimination, including those at the intersections of race, ethnicity, and disability, partnering with them to strengthen movement-building initiatives and change attitudes, policies, and practices that shape global crisis response.
