MAKING WOMEN COUNT FOR PEACE: Workshop on Gender, Empowerment and Conflict in South Asia

Shillong 3-4 August 2012

Time: Fri, 03 – Sat, 04 Aug 2012
Place: Shillong, India

Workshop objectives

The aim of this workshop is to discuss and share information about the efforts of women in Northeast India to promote peace and women’s empowerment, whether as activists, members of social movements, politicians, writers, or in any other capacity. The objective is to gain a better understanding of the efforts and challenges as seen by women themselves, to enable the researchers to ask more relevant and better questions when they carry out their fieldwork. Ultimately, this should help us to communicate to policy-makers how women in conflict settings can work for peace and empowerment, and what empowerment means to women in these contexts.
