Gopinath, Meenakshi; & Nidhi Bhatnagar (2015) Women and Peacebuilding: Engendering Policy, WISCOMP Policy Dialogue, 3. New Delhi: WISCOMP - Foundation for Universal Responsibility.
Hosted by WISCOMP (Women in Security Conflict Management and Peace) in New Delhi, 21-22 February 2015, the PRIO project Making Women Count for Peace co-organised the Roundtable event Women and Peacebuilding: A Policy Dialogue. The Roundtable brought together Indian Members of Parliament and participants from the public service, academia, media, corporate and NGO sectors, with a view to open up spaces of dialogue on the impact of violence on women and men in areas of conflict.
In an attempt to analyse how gendered political power transforms in situations of conflict, WISCOMP organised a Policy Dialogue titled "Women and Peacebuilding" with the underlying assumption that differences in the forms and expressions of gendered power relations, during and after conflict, impact on how "empowerment" can be achieved. The publication "Women and Peacebuilding: Engendering Policy" gives an overview of the presentations and debates at the Policy Dialogue.
