Stichting Women's Initiatives for Gender Justice

Mission of the organization

Mission: WI works to achieve (global) gender justice Vision: A gender just world in which there is accountability for sexual and gender-based crimes and equality in, and through the law. Values: Empowerment of women Strength in collaboration Respect for the rule of law Victim-centered and human rights-based approaches Our Impact WI is an international NGO based in The Hague, the Netherlands. We seek to promote the inclusion of local voices in justice mechanisms and work to empower women and local actors to be engaged in domestic, regional and international peace and justice mechanisms. We advocate for a gender just world through high quality legal research and analysis to help move the field of gender jurisprudence forward. Through amicus curie briefs, our Gender Report Card, articles and blog posts, we raise issues related to gender justice and encourage courts and other justice mechanisms to apply a gender perspective to their work. We help to identify gaps in transitional justice mechanisms, provide mapping, and critical legal and gender analysis to identify barriers to justice. We work with local domestic actors to provide technical assistance, capacity-strengthening, and strategic interventions using a victim-centered approach.
