Genre et guerre Fauroux, Camille

This website is a "scientific watch book" of sorts, gathering and analyzing those issues that cut across gender and war. Gender is interpreted by the website's authors in a broad sense, as a critical knowledge of the power relations between men and women. It therefore includes studies on women, but also masculinities, gender relations, and sexualities. Likewise, through war, one must understand both world conflicts and colonial wars, civil wars or even war anthropology. The authors attempt to tackle these concepts as broadly as possible, without placing any chronological and geographical restrictions.

Global Report 2014: Conflict, Governance, and State Fragility Cole, Benjamin R.

How does good governance emerge following periods of political instability, state failure, and armed conflict? From where does good governance come if not from the peace-building process itself? Political action is very often both triggered and driven by emotive content; whereas, good decisions are usually the product of careful and extensive deliberation, especially in complex societal systems. What may provide a bridge between incitement and reason are the sobering effects of experience viewed through reflections of the past, that is, periods of general war weariness that dissipate the emotive drive of contention to provide an opportunity for war-affected populations and, particularly, political elites to reassess the emotional baggage they are carrying that has distorted past policy priorities and remains to perpetuate poor governance and push societal-systems toward relapses into state failure. Good governance is past-informed and future-oriented; it is both cause and...
