Elisabeth Prügl introduces the 13th thematic issue of International Development Policy ‘Gender in Peacebuilding: Local Practices in Indonesia and Nigeria‘. Professor Elisabeth Prügl is Guest Editor of this thematic issue and Co-director of the Gender Centre at the Graduate Institute.
Gender, age, class, ethnicity, religion and political ideologies all matter in peacebuilding. Adopting a feminist approach, this analyses such intersecting differences in local contexts to develop a better understanding of how intersectionally gendered dynamics shape and are shaped by peacebuilding. Findings are presented from a six-year collaborative research project that, involving scholars from Indonesia, Nigeria and Switzerland, investigated peacebuilding initiatives in Indonesia and Nigeria. The authors identify a number of logics that highlight how gender is deployed strategically or asserts itself inadvertently through gender stereotypes, gendered divisions of labour, or identity constructions.
