This study about women's meaningful participation in the peace and reconciliation process at the local level in Mali is carried out by PRIO upon request by the Folke Bernadotte Academy.
The study is guided by the following questions:
Norway's Minister of Foreign Affairs Ine Eriksen Søreide and Minister of International Development Dag-Inge Ulstein presented the government's new strategy for the Sahel virtually on the 23rd of June. Jenny Lorentzen (PRIO/ Lund University), Morten Bøås (Norwegian Institute of International Affairs), Dagfinn Høybråten (Norwegian Church Aid) and Jan Egeland (Norwegian Refugee Council) commented on the strategy, followed by a short panel debate.
In honor of International Women's Day, we're highlighting the research of Jenny Lorentzen. Jenny is a Senior Researcher at PRIO and a Post-Doc at Lund University. Her PhD work focused partly on women’s participation in Malian peace processes, so today she's talking about what women in Mali had to do to get a seat at the table, and what can be learned from their efforts, and the work of female negotiators around the world.
A new report commissioned by the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) has been published by PRIO in collaboration with Malian partners.
