Victims, Perpetrators or Actors?: Gender, Armed Conflict and Political Violence

Victims, Perpetrators or Actors?: Gender, Armed Conflict and Political Violence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Increasing levels of global conflict and political violence provide a critical challenge for development theorists and practitioners. Many countries have endured decades of armed conflict, and others live under the permanent menace of political violence. Throughout, the gendered impacts of armed conflict and political violence are key issues. The gendered causes, costs, and consequences of violent conflicts have been underrepresented, and often misrepresented. This book gives a broader understanding of the complex, changing relations between women and men in societies facing violence and conflict.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 217-235) and index.
