Women Living in a Gendered World

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This chapter will ask a series of questions: What does it mean to focus on women? What does it mean to think about “post-conflict” dynamics? How is it possible to think of women’s participation in conflicts and post-conflict transitions? What is the relationship between women’s participation and gender equality? What methods can be used to understand the gendered dynamics of post-conflict transitions? Each question will be the subject of a sub-section of this chapter, which will conclude by looking forward to the lessons that analyzing post-conflict transitions through gender lenses could provide for both scholars and policy-makers.
