Yemeni Women's Experts Database

The Peace Track Initiative has developed a database for Yemeni Women's Experts. It has more than 100 profiles of Yemeni women leaders working on different fields with diversified backgrounds. The database will keep growing and we advise you to check it out frequently.

The Peace Track Initiative (PTI) employs a human-rights based approach. The PTI operations are guided by the CEDAW, UNSC 1325 resolution and its relevant subsequent resolutions on Women, Peace, and Security, and internationally agreed human rights frameworks. We focus on three programme areas mainly inclusive peace, protection of women peacemakers, and enhancing feminist knowledge leadership.
