While the gendered dimensions of peacebuilding efforts worldwide are now well established, feminist scholars and peace activists alike call for more attention to the everyday dynamics of (feminist) security and peacebuilding agendas at the micro-level.
Taking stock of results from six years of feminist research on The Gender Dimensions of Social Conflicts, Armed Violence and Peacebuilding with conflict-affected communities in Indonesia and Nigeria, this video aims at sharing knowledge and experiences on particularly promising contributions to peacebuilding at the micro-level in post-conflict settings, focusing on livelihoods and care.
In an effort to contribute to exploring peacebuilding from the everyday angle, discussants share experiences on gendered transformations of livelihood in post-conflict settings, on gendered care as a form of everyday peacebuilding, and on IOs’ efforts to build peace through gender-sensitive micro-levels initiatives in Indonesia and Nigeria.
The video features:
- Rahel Kunz, University of Lausanne, Switzerland
- Elisabeth Prügl, Gender Centre, Graduate Institute, Geneva, Switzerland
- Arifah Rahmawati, Gadja Mada University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
- Christelle Rigual, Gender Centre, Graduate Institute, Geneva, Switzerland
- Wening Udasmoro, Gadja Mada University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
This video was made within the Digital Series of the Geneva Peace Week.
