Social Resilience, Gendered Dynamics, and Local Peace in Protracted Conflicts

Project description

Social resilience and gender relations in war conflicts

War and civil conflicts in the African continent have raised questions about the ability of local communities to be resilient and contribute to peacebuilding rather than be absorbed by the vortex of the conflicts. In addition, questions arise regarding the role gender plays in social resilience and whether resilience has a positive or negative impact on peacebuilding. The EU-funded ResilienceBuilding project aims to advance pioneering multidisciplinary research into resilience building by providing a comparative analysis of social resilience and obstacles to peace in conflict zones. It will compare cases from Central African Republic (CAR), Kenya, Nigeria and South Sudan. The project will apply fieldwork-based multi-method research to evaluate the consequences of international peacebuilding on local peace and gender relations.
