Gender, Conflict and Development, Volume I: Overview

Sunday, January 1, 1995

Prepared as a background paper for a conference on gender, conflict and development organized by Vrouwenberaad Ontwikkelingssamenwerking in January 1996. The first volume gives an overview of the key issues; volume 2 (see separate paper) includes case studies for Cambodia, Rwanda, Kosovo, Algeria, Somalia, Guatemala, and Eritrea. Both reports seek to answer two questions: "How are gender relations affected in the four phases of an armed conflict?" and "Which strategies could be pursued to enhance women's bargaining power in decision-making processes in conflict and peace negotiations?"
