Project: Women And Children In Post-Conflict Peacebuilding

The role of women and children in post-conflict societies has been a major concern of the work of the UN, regional organisations and the NGO community. This project provides a global, comparative, perspective of the challenges that face children and women in post-conflict peacebuilding environments, to draw attention to and offer lessons about a more just inclusion of the needs and interests of women in children in rebuilding economic, political and cultural structures of society.
