Candid Voices from the Field
Delivering transformative change in peace and security is about bringing the lived experience of women at the grassroots into security policy and practice. It is about to supporting the needs of local communities in conflict and fragile settings. It involves giving women’s civil society a place at the tables of the patriarchal institutions of peace and security to dismantle the drivers of conflict and inequality. Women have a vital role to play in the prevention of conflict and in the creation of sustainable peace. However, women’s participation and influence in peace and security can only happen through their social, political and economic empowerment.
