Abstract

This book discusses the experiences of women negotiating conflict and post-conflict situations to deliver transformative peace Inspired by the vision and values of women of the South Asian Peace Network, this volume fills a critical gap in the global Women Peace and Security (WPS) discourse. The chapters focus on the region's multifaceted experiences and feminist expertise on women negotiating post-war-post-conflict situations structured around interlinked themes-women, participation and peacebuilding;militarization and violent peace and justice, impunity, and accountability. This volume looks at the efforts of women trying to deliver a transformative peace that questions gendered power relations while confronting the socio-cultural barriers that prevent them from participating in rebuilding conflict-affected societies to bring about just peace.
