LPI is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Fulata Lusungu Moyo to LPI’s Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is LPI’s highest decision-making body. The seven member board is appointed for a period of four years by our parent body (as we are registered as a research association) the Christian Council of Sweden.

Speaking of her appointment Dr. Lusungu Moyo said:

”I am excited to be on the Life and Peace Institute Board because I believe in the importance of peace as vital for wholeness of life. I bring with me my passion and expertise on gender justice as an ethical imperative for life and peace. There can be no real peace if human relationships are not safeguarded on principles and ideals of gender justice. Even peace building efforts are useless if gender perspectives that embrace women’s experiences of violence as well as their perspectives to peace building are not embraced. The UNSCR1325 has to be taken seriously if peace is our real agenda.”

Dr. Fulata Lusungu Moyo is currently the Programme Executive for Women in Church and Society of the World Council of Churches (WCC), based in Geneva. She focuses on feminist and gender theological ethical perspectives, women’s participation and gender justice relationships . She holds a PhD in Religion and Theology focussing on Gender and Sexual Ethics, as well as a certificate in Conflict Management from the Centre for Conflict Resolution (University of Cape Town, South Africa). Before joining the WCC she was deputy Director of the Conflict Resolution Centre at the Chancellor College (University of Malawi). As a research fellow of the Harvard Divinity School she is developing a Religious Ethic of Care that responds to trafficked and sexually violated women and girls.
