Despite of the longing for peace of all mankind and many sacrifices of peace
activists who walked on tough lives, the world is still not peaceful and is still
in darkness. IWPG has been working for peace through the global network

Global Tour for World Peace
■ IWPG network
IWPG tours the global village to form the network with 3.6 billion women in the
world and meets the leaders of the world as well as political, religious, and women
leaders to present the role and vision to realize peace.
This is a collaborative work with HWPL which tours the whole world with the
answer to peace. The cooperation between IWPG and HWPL under the name
with peace made possible the peace tour.
International Law International Law Support and Advocacy
In order to make a peaceful world without war, we need more than just hoping
and desiring and must make peace be feasible through law and institution.
In addition, every nation should consistently secure such legislation along
with spreading a peaceful culture supported by the law-abiding spirit in each
region around the world. IWPG strongly supports the enactment of ‘Law for
Peace’ as a practical and innovative way to achieve peace.
It is a project to support and promote the ‘Declaration of Peace and Cessation
of War(DPCW)’ of HWPL, the cooperating organization of IWPG. The DPCW
proclaimed by HWPL in 2016 contains a number of practical contents that can
actually achieve peace, including the anti-war articles that prevent war from
occurring. IWPG advocates and encourages the enactment of DPCW into
international law with legally binding effects, and publicizes it widely in
various countries and communities through various means.
The signature movement promotes and enhances the DPCW to become an
enforceable law. IWPG cooperates with city governments worldwide for
support of world citizens through signature collecting campaigns on-line and
IWPG’s campaign is to urge and publicize each article and clause of DPCW and
make it easier for citizens to recognize it.
IWPG carries out various campaigns such as cessation of arms production,
empowerment of women’s right, and publicity based on the spirit of the ‘Peace
Declaration(DPCW)’ in order to support all countries to recognize and accept
the DPCW to accelerate the way to bring peace forward.
The conferences and forums that provide detailed explanations of the ‘Peace
Declaration(DPCW)’ are very effective in supporting, encouraging and pro-
moting the ‘Peace Declaration(DPCW)’. In particular, the ‘9.18 IWPG Network
Forum’ where women leaders and heads of government from all over the
world gather, is a representative advocacy forum. In addition, various seminars
are held to support and help understand the DPCW.
Only Peace Conference
International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) Korea Headquarters (Director
Yoon Hyeonsuk) hosted peace conferences titled ‘Only Peace Conference’
through August and September of 2017. Underlining themes for the
unification of the Korean Peninsula and to highlight the necessity and urge for
an International Law instrument for peace, Only Peace Conference was hosted
in South Korean regions including Seoul, Gyeonggi, Incheon, Cheonan, Yeosu,
Jeonju, and Busan. Notably, the conference was hosted amid rising tensions
on the Korean Peninsula amid a series of missile tests by North Korea.

and round table talks were lead by the chair of council, city council members,
professors, journalists, artists, religious leaders, head of NGOs, and the HQ
director and branch directors of IWPG. Talks at the conference focused on the
‘Korean Unification and the Cessation of War’, ‘Implementation Methods for
‘Cessation of War’, and ‘Promotion Plans for an International Legal Instrument
for Peace and Cessation of War’.
“IWPG’s members worldwide are running peace campaigns and working
with heads of NGOs for women that are registered in the UN to work for an
international legal instrument for peace,” she said as she called for action to
the audience. “Women and youth around the world must reach out to their
presidents, ministers and MPs and urge them to implement a legal instrument
for peace in the international community.”
Talks given by women who are North Korean escapees also gained much
attention from the international audience. Their recollection of the devastating
experiences and the life-risking journeys for freedom and peace reminded the
participants of why we need a peaceful world, free of wars.
