About CWP « Coalition of Women for Peace

About CWP « Coalition of Women for Peace | Activism, Protest, Citizen Movements, Social Justice | Scoop.it
CWP also leads international campaigns for peace and justice, in cooperation with human rights organizations and women’s movements around the world. For example, CWP has initiated an appeal to the British government, signed by 100 organizations around the world, to not limit universal jurisdiction for war crimes; and CWP’s cooperation with Norwegian civil society organizations has led to the largest European public pension fund’s divestment from companies that are involved in the occupation. “Who Profits from the Occupation” Who Profits was founded in 2007 as a research project of the Coalition of Women for Peace (CWP) , in order to investigate economic involvement in the occupation. By exposing companies and corporations that profit from the occupation, we hope to promote a change in public opinions and corporate policies, leading to an end to the occupation.
