Conflict, Community and Care
Editor: Mirjam van Reisen
Publisher: Africa World Press

This volume presents research and analysis about the role women play as peace builders. Set against the present crises of war, destabilisation, economic downturns, human rights violations and state interventions that have led to unprecedented numbers of refugees in many regions of the world, the contributors look at different contexts in which women constitute an important element of peace building. The volume builds on earlier the earlier work of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Elisabeth Rehn on "Women, War and Peace" (2002).
