The International Gender Policy Network (IGPN) is a membership based, non-governmental organization and has been established in autumn 2005 in order to strengthen and foster the policy work impact of the woman’s movement and to ensure the sustainability of women’s movements in the Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia. Network of partners, formely affiliated to the Network Women’s Program of the Open Society Institute (NWP OSI) and actively collaborating with the NWP OSI through national offices of the Open Society Institutes and later directly, as independent NGOs, conceptualized its cooperation and structure into common goals and mission.

The legacy of common work, experience and achievements and shared vision of substantial social change in terms of women’s rights promotion, gathered under the umbrella of the NWP, were the main components of the decision to continue collaboration and advocate for inclusion of women’s human rights into the national, regional and global policy agenda.
