Call for Papers: “The Role of Women and Women’s Civil Society Organizations in Peace Processes”

On 5th and 6th April 2022, the University of Siena and the University of Milan, together with the “Scuola Normale Superiore” and under the patronage of RUniPace (Rete delle Università italiane per la Pace), will host in Siena an international Conference on “The Role of Women and Women’s Civil Society Organizations in Peace Processes”.

The Conference will explore the role played by women and women’s movements in the peace processes of the 20th and 21st Centuries, by way of integrating the historical with a more constitutional, comparative and internationalist perspective. Selected speeches will address the issues at stake on theoretical and practical basis, interlacing the law and the case-law emerging from the comparative and constitutional analysis. Invited speakers include historians, legal scholars, sociologists, and representatives of the civil society and the feminist movements. At the very core of the Conference will be cases about Afghanistan, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Palestine, Kosovo, Turkey, Tunisia, Congo, Rwanda and Sudan that prove to be highly interesting from the angle of women’s actions in the national re-building processes.
