international women’s initiative.
International Women’s Initiative (IWI) was established as an independent charity in 2012 to carry out research, implement programme development, as well as publish and collect resources on women’s human rights throughout the world. In 2018, still using the acronym IWI, International Women’s Initiative became The IWI: Institute For Feminist Policy Reform in a radical transformation of the organisation from a programme based INGO, into a lobbying, policy change and advocacy oriented, women’s human rights think tank. IWI began to concentrate on responding to the needs of women and making direct analyses of institutionalised gender discrimination globally. Today, IWI is at the cutting edge of the research and analysis that inform the struggle for women’s human rights justice in the US, UK, Europe and internationally. It seeks to reflect the experiences of those who suffer oppression due to gender and draws its perspectives from the most vulnerable in society.
The IWI: Institute For Feminist Policy Reform is at the cutting edge of the research and analysis that inform the struggle for women’s human rights and justice internationally. IWI is a think tank which aims to better inform the process of political change as it relates to women’s human rights and deepen understanding of the complex contributing issues that affect it.
