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? In this volume, the author offers a comprehensive, cross-regional analysis of women's peacebuilding initiatives around the world and highlights the endemic problems that stunt progress. Her 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 provides concrete examples of how to draw on women's untapped potential.
