Libyan Women on The Road to Peace

20.02.2017 / Created by JCSD

History is full of examples where women played an essential role in nation-building after the wars and disasters, and examples of this are: women’s role in Europe after the First World War; the impact of Rwandan women in peace-making and maintaining stability after the violent war between Hutus and Tutsis; Irish women who contributed to ending the conflict which lasted for many years through forming a coalition of women in Northern Ireland. In a country like Libya which has been affected by conflicts and is still suffering from lawlessness and instability and where women make up nearly half of the population, it is natural for them to play a key role in the peace process. In this article, I will explain the importance of the integration of Libyan women in peace-building and the concept of peace through a Jusoor survey conducted on social media. I will equally explain the Iraqi experience in adopting a national plan of development and the ways in which Iraqi women were implicated in the development and reconstruction proces
