In early July, a new Feminist Institute of Peace Studies was launched at Peace MOMO, a Koren based organization specializing in teacher training and training of trainers on critical and creative peace education. The GCPE looks forward to future cooperation with this new institute.
Below is a message of solidarity from Betty Reardon, Co-founder of the Global Campaign for Peace Education, on the occasion of this important inauguration.
To Dr. Kim Elli, Director
Feminist Institute of Peace Studies
Dear Dr. Kim:
I am delighted to send greetings and congratulations on the inauguration of the Feminist Institute of Peace Studies within Peace MOMO.
It is good to know of this initiative to assure the inclusion of feminist knowledge and perspectives in peace education. It is especially important at this time of the rising active movements of global civil society. A Korean NGO recognizing the importance of feminism to all efforts for peace is a promising positive development in women’s long history of working for peace…
I wish you success in your endeavors and hope that your efforts might become known to all in the networks of the International Institute on Peace Education and the Global Campaign for Peace Education.
All the best,
Betty A. Reardon
Founding Director Emeritus, International Institute on Peace Education
