From women’s perspective: women in post-conflict situations in Africa
GEZA and ÖNSI OB organized the event, “From women’s perspective: women in post – conflict situations in Africa”. Within the framework of this event, Sabine Mandl (BIM) reported about gender roles during wars and in postconflict areas, as well as the importance of special needs for children, women and men, that should not only be implemented in peace-promoting work, but also in development cooperation. Fritz Hemedinger from the Keppler University of Linz presented his field trip to Uganda, where he and a delegation of the Upper Austrian government studied the “peace-builiding project in Northern Uganda”. Project manager Eunice Atek from ACORD Uganda discussed experiences, achievements and challenges.
