Women building peace: what they do, why it matters
"How and why do women's contributions matter in peace and security processes? Why should women's activities in this sphere be explored separately from peacebuilding efforts in general? Decisively answering these questions, Sanam Naraghi Anderlini offers a comprehensive, cross-regional analysis of women's contributions to conflict prevention, resolution, and reconstruction around the world." "Anderlini also traces the evolution of international policies in this arena and highlights the endemic problems that stunt progress. Her astute analysis, based on extensive research and field experience, demonstrates how gender sensitivity in programming can be a catalytic component in the complex task of building sustainable peace - and she provides concrete examples of how to draw on and strengthen women's untapped potential."--BOOK JACKET.
