The Peace Track Initiative (PTI) aims at localizing and feminizing the peace process through promoting inclusion and enhancing feminist knowledge leadership in the Middle East and North Africa with focus on Yemen. PTI has positioned itself as a Track II partner promoting feminist peace processes. PTI working areas focuses on promoting inclusion of women and marginalized groups in the peace and political processes, as well as, promoting the protection of women's rights, and amplifying feminist knowledge leadership. PTI employs a human-rights based approach to our programs. The PTI operations are guided by the CEDAW, UNSC 1325 resolution and its relevant subsequent resolutions on Women, Peace, and Security, and internationally agreed human rights frameworks.
