As part of a set of case studies shedding light on the role of women in peacebuilding, Faiza Jama's article is taken from Accord issue 21 (2010), focusing on Somalia.

Excluded from the all-male arena of clan-based politics, women have directed their collective political acumen and agency into the civil society space that opened up after state collapse. Indeed some women would argue that Somali civil society organisations' engagement in peace work did not start until women took a dedicated leadership role.
