Autrefois survivante d’Ebola, aujourd’hui artisan de paix communautaire

On a estimé qu’au plus fort de la crise Ebola, 75 % des personnes contaminées étaient des femmes.Au vu de leur rôle prépondérant dans les soins et l’aide apportés aux malades, en tant qu’infirmières ou commerçantes, les femmes se sont retrouvées en première ligne face au virus, et de ce fait, ont souvent été rejetées par leur communauté. Trois ans après le début de la crise, Conciliation Resources et ses partenaires en Afrique de l’Ouest continuent de soutenir des plateformes de paix locales pour mettre fin aux divisions causées par l’épidémie.

From cooperation to contention

Mar 2017
This publication examines the increasing incidence of violent conflict between pastoralists and farmers in Nigeria. It looks at how previous cooperative relationships have broken down in many communities resulting in unprecedented levels of killing and destruction. The report explores the challenges to developing conflict prevention mechanisms, including the layers of political unsettlement that exist at local, state and federal levels, and identifies potential entry points for local conflict resolution. The publication is part of the Political Settlements Research Programme (PSRP) which explores how international and national interventions can more effectively support inclusive political settlements in fragile and conflict-affected states.

Women's meaningful participation in peace
It is widely acknowledged that women’s meaningful participation in peace processes is fundamental to ensuring a sustainable and transformative peace.
