Abstract

The study has assessed the reconstruction programs in the post-conflict societies of Cambodia and Rwanda in the context of existing security challenges to women compared to their pre-conflict role and status. It has examined the causes of violence against women and how much the political stability, democratic form of government and economic progress helps to ensure security to women. It has analyzed the two cases in the light of feminist claim that post-conflict reconstructions are prejudiced against women. It has further scrutinized the role of political representation of women in the advancement of women’s security.
