Occasional Paper Series: Gender and Peace building in Africa | Fahamu

Occasional Paper Series: Gender and Peace building in Africa | Fahamu | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

This occasional paper series was initially framed by an interest in interrogating gender training as a tool for transformation within peacekeeping and peace support operations. The focus of this series subsequently expanded to include a critical analysis of the dominant paths through which gender has been integrated into discourses on security.
As a result, training, the integration of women into the military, the role of autonomous women’s movements in post-conflict reconstruction and an interrogation of masculinities have become the range of approaches that are discussed by the authors in this series.

South Africa is certainly a nation that has experienced conflict on many levels.
We see proof there that conflict may seem insurmountable but it can be resolved.
This just reminds me of the amazing influence of Nelson Mandela - once the oppressed, he rose to lead his nation as President. His agenda was only ever peace, resolution, reconciliation, and the prosperity of the nation. What an inspirational man.
