ReThink: A Handbook for Sustainable Peace

Author(s): Soderberg Jacobson, A.  Produced by: Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation (2004)

This handbook is intended as a tool for people working in areas affected by war and armed conflict and in the peace and rebuilding process.

It draws on numerous examples of women's efforts in peace-building and deconstruction to illustrate the problems which can arise from failure to mainstream gender issues into programmes, and the benefits which can be gained by recognising and involving women. The report also discusses the development of the women's international peace movement, shortcomings in the international community's efforts, and briefly outlines case studies of women's achievements in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Palestine and Israel, and Guatemala.
