How and why do women's contributions matter in peace and security processes? Why should women's activities in this sphere be explored separately from peacebuilding efforts in general? Decisively answering these questions, Sanam Anderlini offers a comprehensive, cross-regional analysis of women's peacebuilding initiatives around the world. Anderlini also traces the evolution of international policies in this arena and highlights the endemic problems that stunt progress. Her astute analysis, based on extensive research and field experience, demonstrates how gender sensitivity in programming can be a catalytic component in the complex task of building sustainable peace and provides concrete examples of how to draw on women's untapped potential.show more

Review quote

Anderlini moves beyond the well-tread path with this measured, well-informed analysis of the impact of women on building and maintaining peace. Her work should be mandatory reading for students, scholars, and practitioners in the fields of conflict resolution and security studies. Julie Mertus, American Universityshow more
