The development of strong networking relations with women's civil society organizations is crucial for FAS. Conferences and other events in support of women's issues are an important means of consolidating and expanding these networks and partnerships.


Organizations and institutions which share FAS' goals in furthering African women's peace movement ensures the most efficient use of resources; avoidance of duplication and overlap; and allows for every opportunity for action to be seized.
