How can societies emerging from conflict best engage women in peace processes and the rebuilding process? In post-conflict societies women need to be better integrated into the economy, both as entrepreneurs in their own right and often as the only surviving heads of households. A panel of experts will discuss case studies and
strategies for promoting the involvement of women in post-conflict reconstruction.
