Gender Justice in Conflict and Peace

In the last 20 years, the majority of the poorest countries have suffered from war. After establishing peace almost half of these countries relapsed in the former state of conflict. Most post-war reconstruction strategies, which aim to help the whole population in the area of conflict, neglect the uniqueness and different needs of disparate groups in the society. Often women are one of such groups.
