As we move into this new decade, women peacebuilders from around the world are facing enormous challenges as they work to build more inclusive and safer societies. To better understand the peacebuilding landscape that these women are currently navigating, the Kroc School's Institute for Peace and Justice has conducted a network-wide research project with its Women Waging Peace members. This research brought together perspectives from over 1,000 women from 56 different countries who are working to end cycles of violence in their communities.

In the fifth installment of our Kroc Insight series entitled "Triple Threat: New Research Highlights Three Key Sources of Insecurity for Women Peacebuilders", we focus on one theme in particular – the increased insecurity and threat women peacebuilders are facing from three main sources: state actors, non-state actors, and their domestic space.

During these trying times of COVID-19, further research is showing that the threats, violence and insecurity women peacebuilders face within their homes is only increasing. As a peacebuilding community, we must find ways to address these first lines of threat that women peacebuilders are facing now and will continue to experience post-COVID-19.
