United States Institute of Peace Announces Finalists for 2021 Women Building Peace Award on the International Day of Peace

The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is proud to announce the finalists for the 2021 Women Building Peace Award on the International Day of Peace.

This prestigious global award is given each year to a woman peacebuilder who has made a major contribution to peace in her country.

This year, USIP received nominations from over 30 countries.

The recipient of this year’s award will be announced at a ceremony on October 20, 2021, at USIP’s iconic campus on the National Mall in Washington D.C.

“Throughout the world, women play leading roles in preventing conflict, reducing violence and ending wars, “This is our chance to celebrate and elevate women who make the difference.”

“These women face enormous odds on a daily basis, often risking their lives for peace, “We stand in profound awe of their courage.”

“Each of the women we have selected as finalists embodies the bravery, leadership and commitment to community and country that this award recognizes.

Congress founded USIP in 1984 as an independent, nonpartisan, national institute to prevent and end violent conflict abroad and uphold the United States’ fundamental commitment to peace.
