Feminist Peace Research Network (FPRN) is a networking project for feminist peace researchers and activists. The project is coordinated by Tampere Peace Research Institute Tapri at the University of Tampere (Finland), in collaboration with Lund University (Sweden), and University of Tromsø (Norway). It is funded by the Joint Committee for Nordic research councils in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NOS-HS).
The present project consists of three workshops, organized in 2016-2017 in Tampere, Lund, and Tromsø. The workshop series cherishes and strengthens the links between feminist peace movements and researchers, by inviting both practitioners and activists to join an emerging global network of Feminist Peace Research. The aim is to bring together feminist peace scholars, practitioners and activists from across the world, and across a range of scholarly disciplines. The project aims at opening up a space for feminist experts in research, policies and practices, hence serving the interests of the various stakeholders in society, who benefit from making policies and practices more equal for everyone, within the academia and beyond.
Over time and beyond the initial three year project, the goal of FPRN is to gradually establish an extensive network, both geographically and in terms of the variety of feminist peace approaches covered.
